How do I preconfigure proxy settings and home page during setup? I need to do this for an offline automated install.
I run application for clients that automatically installs windows and applications. I currently install Firefox silently and it installs properly, but without any settings configured. I would like to preconfigure settings for my customer so that techs and users don't have to waste time configuring those settings manually.
In particular, I need to set the home page to the organization home page, and I need to setup up the network configuration to point to an automatic proxy configuration URL. I would also like to pre-populate bookmarks with specific URL's for my customer.

You probably can set the home page and proxy preferences in a test installation, exit Firefox, then push out the prefs.js file containing the modified preferences as a post-installation step. Bookmarks are stored in places.sqlite, which you also could copy to the systems post-installation. Probably the trickiest part in that approach is figuring out the random name of the profile folder...
Would be easier if you could bundle that all in in advance. The Mozilla wiki lists resources that might be useful:
You can use a mozilla.cfg file in the Firefox program folder to lock prefs or specify new (default) values.
Place a file local-settings.js in the defaults\pref folder where you also find the file channel-prefs.js to specify using mozilla.cfg.
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); // use this to disable the byte-shift
You can use these functions in mozilla.cfg:
defaultPref(); // set new default value pref(); // set pref, but allow changes in current session lockPref(); // lock pref, disallow changes
