    I want to be able to click a button or enable something in my FF (most likely a add-on) that will turn on my proxy which is username/password protected so I don't have to keep going into my preferences to set a proxy.

    Anyone know of a add-on that does this? I only see just straight proxy:port no username / password friendly ones.

    Use foxyproxy addon for firefox.

    OR

    Use elite proxy switcher (its a windows software not firefox addon)

    If you just want a simple proxy addon to firefox you could try QuickProxy. You can put it on your status bar and turn it on or off with just a click. I've tried it and it's pretty reliable but doesn't have that many functions.
