Start Firefox according to IP Address or Windows Username?

Is there any way to have Firefox start up differently depending on the IP Address currently being used, or by the Windows Username that has been logged in?

I would like to use my Portable Firefox at three different locations -- home, a library, and work. Each has different proxy settings (or none in the case of home.)

Currently, I am using FoxyProxy to switch between different proxy requirements at work, but I do not want to have to switch its settings each time I start Firefox from a different location or login.

you could set up 3 different

you could set up 3 different portable installs of it, then click 1 depending where you are

Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.

The best tradeoff for this

The best tradeoff for this particular situation would be to create a proxy auto-config (PAC) file that is on your USB key.

Here is the Wikipedia entry(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_auto-config) on this matter, which contains some basic examples of what you can do.

Using this, you would be able to create a script that will let Firefox does the logic and determine which proxy to use depending of the conditions you put in.
