You need to install an http proxy that speaks socks4a. One example is
privoxy. You configure your mozilla to http and https proxy to localhost
8118, then you configure your privoxy to socks4a proxy to localhost 9050.

Let me know if it works. If it still fails, look in your Tor logs to see
if there are any hints.
