Glimmerblocker, while primarily an Ad Blocker, will allow you to set a system wide web proxy for each machine it is installed on. Works for Safari, FF and Chrome.

is this the only solution? I really do not want to have to install software on the computers. The proxy settings workd when we had OS X 10.6.8 but when we upgraded is when the issues started happening

Firefox handles its own proxy settings, see Firefox > Preferences > Advanced:
Network tab, Settings… (button)

Chrome should work as it uses the system's proxy settings.
