For some reason, I must access the internet through a proxy server. But during the ff's installation, there is not any optional configuration to indicate the installation program how to access the internet. Then the installation fails again and again. So, you mean, we guys, who must access the internet through a proxy server, should not use your product?

I don't know about trying to actually install Firefox thru a proxy, but after you download and install Firefox you can setup your proxy parameters like this.

Tools > Options > Advanced - Network > Connection = Settings
Setup your Proxy settings in that pref window.
