Help with avast settings please

  gel 16:15 06 May 2007

I use Avast free edition, I have broad band and use firefox as my default browser.
Can you please advise the Update Connection setting.
Do I tick 'I only connect to the internet using a dial up modem' OR 'my computer is permanently connected to the internet' I think the former.
Secondly can you help with the proxy server setting(used for program updating)
I have ticked auto detect (use internet explorer settings) and when I press test connection I get inf 'proxy server settings are correct.
I am confused by the reference to( use internet explorer setting) since I am using firefox.
Could some one explain please
Thank you

I also use Avast and firefox my settings are:

Update Basic - set bot sections to Automatic

Update connections - untick both boxes
Proxy - tick Auto detect (use IE settings)

Similar to Fruit Bat /\0/\ but, as it's broadband, it's configured as "Permanently Connected to the Internet".

I also have the update period at 60 minutes rather than the Default setting.
