I need a simple way to change the proxy settings of Firefox from an external program ( I want to write my own proxy manager for the Linux platform - none of the available programs for this are to my liking ). I'm not sure how to set up the interaction between an application written in C and the web browser ( I'd like to toggle the proxy settings on and off and change all the information displayed on the "Connection Settings" dialog , tools -> options -> network -> settings ). I'm not sure of how to start the Firefox end of the application. Thanks for any information!
