pre-configuration: all.js

options concerning the PAC (all.js is attached as well) :
---------------8<------------------------------------------
pref("network.proxy.autoconfig_url",
"http://shai-hulud.wlb.sin/proxy.pac.php");
//pref("network.proxy.type",		      0);
// Typ des Proxy-Servers:
// 0 Kein Proxy (direkte Verbindung zum Internet)
// 1 Manuelle Proxy-Konfiguration
// 2 Automatische Proxy-Konfiguration
pref("network.proxy.type",		    2);
---------------------------------------------->8-----------

customization is done by editing browser.xpi:/bin/defaults/pref/*.js and
rezipping browser.xpi
