However the moment I diconnect the LAN, firefox comes up with a message stating "Offine Mode" ... see image below...
Root your phone and you can get wireless tether. No proxy workaround -- just connect to your phone, with wifi, or Bluetooth, and surf all you want.
This is the guide I used to root
This thread has a lot of good info about rooting too.
And here is a link for wireless tether
Oh -- and if you root your phone -- I suggest Cyanogen's ROM's. and Cyan's recovery image. You can find everything Cyan, here....
