Have you considered https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4125 
? I haven't tried it but it sounds useful for that case.

There are per-connection proxy settings in control panel -> connections 
(advanced or somesuch button on the last page of the wizardry)... I 
don't know how they interact with prefs you might set in about:config 
but if you're mentioning the possibility of changing them in browser 
prefs I think you'll need to either also explain the interaction, or use 
a different example, to avoid confusion :)

For maemo-mapper, "Bluetooth" with blank address works; see
