Have you tried the No Proxy setting?
Options window - Advanced panel | How to | Firefox Help
If Firefox stubbornly refuses to save settings changes, it sometimes indicate a corrupted settings file. This article has info on how to reset that file, but doesn't mention proxy settings as one of the symptoms... Toolbar keeps resetting | Troubleshooting | Firefox Help.

For one (1) I can only strongly suggest you upgrade to SP#3.Very advisable.
2)Upgrade to FF4.0.1 here's the link if you want;http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/fx/?ref=logo
Now then do connect the internet through a router?
Also make sure Firefox is your default browser.Click on;Tools,Options,Advanced.Click on,Check NOW.Then click on,OK.Problems cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them. -Albert Einsten
