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:

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?
