Question Problems with editing proxy configurations in .bash_profile


I installed the FC2 on my computer at the university and there they use a proxy configuration to get access to the internet. The first thing I did was went to the mozilla's proxy configurations and edit the settings there manually. It works fine, but the problem is that, obviously, this just works to mozilla and I wanted to have access to the internet for others applications. I read that I should edit the file .bash_profile and put there something like that:

http_proxy=http://fornax.cs.up.ac.za:8080
ftp_proxy=http://fornax.cs.up.ac.za:8080
export http_proxy
export ftp_proxy

The problem is that is required a login and password to have access to the internet. In the mozilla's case, for example, the first time when I open it, appears a screen asking for the login and password. I want to know if there is a way to edit this login and password in the .bash_profile file and when it was done, if I leave the mozzila's proxy configuration manual or Direct connection to the internet?

try these ,

HTTP_USER=person
HTTP_USER_PASS=password
export HTTP_USER
export HTTP_USER_PASS

I know lynx looks for these variables but i'm not sure about mozilla. i'm not to sure about the case
