ok, first things first.. Go to Tools->Options->Advanced->Network-> settings

In the box marked no proxy for enter a comma delimited list of the 
webpages you don't want to go out the pix. This will cause firefox not 
to attempt to proxy them via your pix. This will cause the traffic to 
head out what ever default gateway you have set. If your default gateway 
is the wireless, which is doubtful, then you are all set. If its not, 
then you will have to get the ip addresses of the websites that you want 
to send out via the wireless and add routes onto your windows box to 
route that traffic via the wireless router..

Hope this helps.....
