Update and proxy question

The organization I'm in has moved to using what I believe is a Bess
filter behind a PIX firewall, and it authenticates users before allowing
access to http and https sites. It tries to automatically authenticate
users to a Windows Active Directory domain.
The boss said I can manually configure my web browser to use the proxy.
I set it up in Firefox to go to the correct port and address, and it
prompts me to log in then I can web browse. But auxiliary services...my
weather applet, my system updates...are blocked still. Even if I set my
network settings to use that proxy and use authentication, the filter is
blocking everything except for my Firefox browser.
Is there a client-side solution to this??
