Possible values and their effects

true

When saving the proxy settings, save the HTTP proxy as the proxy for the other protocols.

false

When saving the proxy settings, save the proxy protocol settings separately. (Default)

Caveats

  • This preference does not exist by default, except in Firefox.
  • This preference only affects the behaviour of the preference UI, setting it manually has no effect.
