Hi arshadmahmood,
If you have a static IP, you cant change the IP address in the adapter-hence it being "static" as opposed to dynamic. 172.16.55.50 is static. If you know the IP of the proxy server you wish to use, just configure it in your LAN settings.

Hope this helps. There are also numerous "add ons" for firefox that will help you as well.
