Oops, sorry for creating confusion, I misread your email as fire_fox_,
in which case adding it the the startup programs in the session would be
the right way to go.

For fire_starter_ it is different, and possibly depending on which
distribution you run.

Did you check that there is not only a script /etc/init.d/firestarter,
but that the script is also actually run anywhere? For example, on my
machine (Gutsy), it would be run
by /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/50firestarter

You can perform "dpkg -L firestarter | grep etc" to find which startup
script is installed by the firestarter package.
