Proxy configuration type

To retrieve data, Mozilla can be configured to route its requests through another server.
Users may choose to use a specific automatic proxy configuration file, to automatically detect the network's proxy settings, or manually configure their proxy settings. This preference controls what kind of proxy to use.

Supported on: Any Mozilla application, supported by GPO plugin
