Nasty security says it all.  I am traveling out of the country for a month, need to do some work with Facebook developers, to set up an API key, secret key.

The problem - when accessing FB it detects that I am in a foreign land making me suspicious and prompts me to go through a series of security questions.

q1 is a phone option which is useless
q2 ask me to verify pictures of friends, equally useless, why?  because many of the pictures are of people i don't know but friended me, so of course I have no idea what they look like.

contact facebook - how?  the contact fb page takes you to a bunch of problem types but for the life of me i can't find one that takes me to an email address or form

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas how to change proxy servers or something else in Firefox to fool this beast and make em thing I am at home in Colorado?
