To block the changing of proxy servers through group policy for internet explorer you can find the settings under the following section.

User Settings > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer

You will probably also want to statically set your proxy server info under the following location.
User Settings > Windows Settings > Internet Explorer Maintenance > Connection

As far as mozilla there arent any MS provided ADM templates for this.. So you will need to use a third party ADM file. Somethine like the ones below, but be aware I have never used these so I cant vouch for them.

The policy settings are located in the following locations in the GPO:

First Provide the Proxy setting...
User Settings --> Windows Settings --> Internet Explorer Maintenance --> Connection
Then open the Proxy Settings window and add 0.0.0.0 for port 80.

To Block Proxy setting..
