    You can use your sudoers file to do it. Here's a good howto:

    However, running firestarter automatically is not a good idea but a security risk. You don't need to run the firestarter gui for your firewall to work. It will happily work in the background, once you used firestarter to set it up and so there's really no reason to start the gui without a password.
