I have not used gmail's smtp service, but it *may* require that you use
your gmail account address. My roadrunner account does not require
this, so I have not bothered to try gmail-smtpm and am able to use a
gmail From: address.

Their instructions and/or a simple trial email should provide you with
the answer.

Another problem may arise, the last time I used mozilla for mail (some
time long ago), you were only allowed *one* pop account configuration,
but could use multiple imap accounts. Gmail has no imap capabilities.

A simple solution to this would be two or more mozilla profiles.
