VB Script to change Mozilla Firefox Proxy settings

I would like to know if anyone has a vb script that could be run at login to change the proxy info for mozilla firefox.   I have internet explorer's set through GPO, but have not been able to find a good script to do this for Firefox.  The problem is that the folder location and name changes over time.  Thanks.

I actually wrote a vbscript that does this.  Are you using all the default FF setting?  Mine works for both FF 2 and 3.  Also, do you need it to just turn the proxy on, or do you also need it to input the proxy addresses and ports?

The solution below uses a .pac file over VBScript.  Would that do?
