FTP_PASSIVE_MODE wont help, you need to set http_proxy, e.g.:

(for csh, tcsh)
setenv  http_proxy http://squid.example.com:3128

(for sh, bash, ksh, zsh etc)
export http_proxy=http://squid.example.com:3128

I would suggest you put them in /etc/csh.cshrc and  /etc/profile
respectively so they apply to everything.

Any GUI applications, like Firefox, will probably need to be set

You might conceivably need to set ftp_proxy and the capitalised
versions: HTTP_PROXY and FTP_PROXY, but I think everything should
fall-back to http_proxy.
