  <li>Under the Advanced category, click Offline Apps. (If no subcategories are
    visible, double-click Advanced to expand the list.)</li>
</ol>

<p>The Offline Web Applications panel allows you to control and monitor how
  websites use &brandShortName;&apos;s offline storage. Websites can provide
  complex functionality beyond just the presentation of content, implementing
  <a href="glossary.xhtml#web_application">web applications</a>. In general,
  such web applications require you to stay online in order to use them, thus
  won&apos;t function when you are disconnected from the network (offline).
  If permitted, websites can store their content and any data you entered
  locally in &brandShortName;. In this way, web applications can be used even
  without a network connection.</p>

<p>The <strong>Offline Web Content and User Data</strong> section provides the
  following functions:</p>

<ul>
  <li><strong>Your offline storage currently uses [__] of disk space</strong>:
    This entry is informational and provides you with an estimate of the
    offline data currently used by all web applications combined.</li>
  <li><strong>Clear</strong>: Immediately clears data that has been saved
    by all websites for use when you are offline.</li>
  <li><strong>Allow all websites to store data for offline use</strong>: Select
    this option if you want to permit websites by default to store web content
    and user data locally on the disk of your computer.</li>
  <li><strong>Only allow websites with explicit permissions</strong>: Select
    this option if you want to control whether or not a website can store web
    content for offline use locally. Unless explicit permission has been
    granted, the website&apos;s request to access the offline storage is
    blocked or a notification shown to give you the option to allow it.</li>
  <li><strong>Notify me when websites want to store data for offline
    use</strong>: Check this box if you want to be notified when a website
    requests to store content or data in the offline storage but does not
    currently have any permissions set whether or not it is allowed to do so.
    An information bar will appear for this site offering the following options:
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Always Allow</strong>: Permanently allow this site the use
        of the offline storage for this and future accesses.</li>
      <li><strong>Never for This Site</strong>: Permanently deny this site
        the use of the offline storage for this and future accesses.</li>
      <li><strong>Not Now</strong>: Deny this site the use of the offline
        storage for this request but ask again for future accesses.</li>
    </ul>
    <p><strong>Note</strong>: The offline storage is <em>not</em> available in
      a <a href="using_priv_help.xhtml#browsing_in_a_private_window">private
      window</a>. You will receive a notification if this option is checked,
      but all requests will be blocked.</p>
  </li>
  <!-- NOTE: link "Data Manager" below once bug 599097 has been fixed -->
  <li><strong>Manage Permissions</strong>: Opens the Data Manager in a new
    tab or window where you can modify the Offline Web Applications permissions
    for each domain:
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Use Default</strong>: Check this box to return to the default
        behavior, thus presenting the information bar with the next request
        from a site within each domain if the notification option is chosen
        (effectively removes the entry from this listing).</li>
      <li><strong>Allow</strong>: Select this option to allow this site
        the use of the offline storage for all accesses.</li>
      <li><strong>Block</strong>: Select this option to deny this site
        the use of the offline storage for all accesses.</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li><strong>The following websites are using offline storage</strong>:
    Lists the domains of all websites which have stored offline data, along
    with the amount of data currently used by this domain.</li>
  <li><strong>Clear Data</strong>: Select a website domain and click this
    button to delete all offline data for the specified domain. Click <q>Remove
    offline data</q> after being prompted for confirmation to do so.</li>

  have a proxy configuration file or for the names and port numbers of the
  proxy.</p>

<ul>
  <li><strong>Direct connection to the Internet</strong>: Choose this if you
    don&apos;t want to use a proxy.</li>
  <li><strong>Automatically discover the proxy configuration</strong>: Choose
    this if you want &brandShortName; to automatically detect and configure the
    proxy settings, using the <a href="glossary.xhtml#wpad">WPAD protocol</a>.</li>
  <li><strong>Automatic proxy configuration URL</strong>: Choose this if you
    have a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file or URL, then enter the
    configuration URL.
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Reload</strong>: Click this to reload the configuration file.

        <p>A PAC file has JavaScript code which chooses a proxy to use depending
          on the address you open. The same file can use more than one proxy or
          use proxies only for specific addresses. For more information about
          the content of PAC files, see the online
          <a href="https://developer.mozilla.org/docs/Web/HTTP/Proxy_servers_and_tunneling/Proxy_Auto-Configuration_%28PAC%29_file">MDN
          documentation on Proxy Auto-Configuration files</a>.</p>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li><strong>Manual proxy configuration</strong>: Choose this if you
    don&apos;t have a proxy location (URL), or the automatic proxy discovery
    was unable to setup the proxy settings correctly.
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Proxy</strong>: Enter the name or numeric IP address of
        the proxy server.</li>
      <li><strong>Port</strong>: Enter the port number in the Port field. Click
        on <q>Advanced</q> to set
        <a href="#advanced_proxy_preferences">Advanced Proxy Preferences</a></li>
      <li><strong>No Proxy for</strong>: Type the domains and/or IP addresses
        that you do not want to use a proxy for. Separate each entry with a
        comma. (Example: <kbd>.mozilla.org, .net.nz, 192.168.1.0/24</kbd>.)
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>

<h3 id="advanced_proxy_preferences">Advanced Proxy Preferences</h3>

<p>If you want to use different proxies for different protocols or need to use
  a SOCKS proxy:</p>

<ul>
  <li><strong>HTTP Proxy</strong>, <strong>SSL Proxy</strong>,
    <strong>FTP Proxy</strong>: Enter the name or numeric IP address 
    of the proxy server. Type the port in the Port fields.

    <p><strong>Note</strong>: If you&apos;re using the same settings
      for all types of proxies, click on <q>Use HTTP Proxy settings
      for all protocols</q>.</p>

  </li>
  <li><strong>SOCKS Proxy</strong>: Enter the name or numeric IP address
    of the proxy server. Enter the port number in the Port field. 
    <ul>
      <li><strong>SOCKS v4, SOCKS v5</strong>: When entering a SOCKS Proxy,
        select <q>SOCKS v4</q> or <q>SOCKS v5</q>, depending on what version
        of <a href="glossary.xhtml#socks">SOCKS</a> is used for the proxy.</li>
      <li><strong>Use for resolving hostnames</strong>: Select this to
        use the SOCKS Proxy for resolving hostnames. This is
        recommended for SOCKS v5 proxies.</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>

<h2 id="http_networking">Advanced Preferences - HTTP Networking</h2>

<p>This section describes how to use the HTTP Networking preferences panel. If
  you&apos;re not already viewing it, follow these steps:</p>

<ol>
  <li>Open the <span class="mac">&brandShortName;</span>
    <span class="noMac">Edit</span> menu and choose Preferences.</li>
  <li>Under the Advanced category, click HTTP Networking. (If no subcategories
    are visible, double-click Advanced to expand the list.)</li>
</ol>

<p>The HTTP Networking preferences panel is used to configure HTTP-based
  networking:</p>

<ul>
  <li><strong>Direct Connection Options, Proxy Connection Options</strong>:
    Choose the HTTP version and options for direct and proxy connections.
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Use HTTP 1.0</strong>: Choose this to use the original
        version of HTTP, standardized in 1996. This setting is mostly intended
        for compatibility reasons with proxy or older web servers.</li>
      <li><strong>Use HTTP 1.1</strong>: Choose this to use the current version
        of HTTP, which offers performance enhancements, including more efficient
        use of HTTP connections, better support for client-side caching, and
        more refined control over cache expiration and replacement policies.</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li><strong>User Agent String</strong>:
    The identifier sent by &brandShortName; to all websites is used for
    statistics about website usage but also sometimes to expose certain features
    only to known browsers (a practice known as "sniffing"). Consequently,
    changing this option may result in websites not working properly.
    &brandShortName; can:
    <ul>
      <li><strong>Identify as Firefox</strong>: Do not mention &brandShortName;,
        send a Firefox identifier instead. This might be needed for websites
        which refuse to work when &brandShortName; is mentioned in the
        identifier.</li>
      <li><strong>Identify as &brandShortName;</strong>: &brandShortName; will
        identify itself as &brandShortName;, without mentioning Firefox.</li>
      <li><strong>Identify as &brandShortName; and advertise Firefox
        compatibility</strong>: &brandShortName; will identify itself as both
        &brandShortName; and also compatible with Firefox. This allows websites
        that check for certain browsers rather than certain functionality to
        work with &brandShortName;, while still appearing as &brandShortName; in
        website statistics.</li>
    </ul>

<h2 id="mouse_wheel">Advanced Preferences - Mouse Wheel</h2>

<p>This section describes how to use the Mouse Wheel preferences panel. If
  you&apos;re not already viewing it, follow these steps:</p>

<ol>
  <li>Open the <span class="mac">&brandShortName;</span>
    <span class="noMac">Edit</span> menu and choose Preferences.</li>
  <li>Under the Advanced category, click Mouse Wheel. (If no subcategories
    are visible, double-click Advanced to expand the list.)</li>
</ol>

<p>The Mouse Wheel preferences panel allows you to control how the mouse wheel
  on your mouse (in between your mouse buttons) is used in &brandShortName;.
  Modern mice may have two wheels or a button that can be used to switch the
  scroll direction of the wheel. The behaviour for the vertical wheel function
  is set in the upper panel <strong>Vertical scrolling</strong> while the 
  horizontal mode is controlled by the lower panel <strong>Horizontal
  scrolling</strong>.</p>

<ul>
  <li>Select <q>No modifier key</q> or select a key that you want to use
    along with the mouse wheel. Use the checkboxes below to configure mouse
    wheel behavior:

    <ul>
      <li><strong>Same as vertical scrolling</strong>: Choose this when your
        mouse has a single control that provides both vertical and horizontal
        scrolling. If your mouse has a separate horizontal scrolling control
        then you can choose to assign a different function to it.</li>
      <li><strong>Do nothing</strong>: Choose this to disable the scroll wheel
        when used with the specified modifier key.</li>
      <li><strong>Scroll the document</strong>: Choose this to scroll the
        document by the system default number of lines or characters.</li>
      <li><strong>Move back and forward in the browsing history</strong>:
        Choose this to use the mouse wheel to navigate back or forward to
        previous pages you&apos;ve visited.</li>
      <li><strong>Zoom the page in or out</strong>: Choose this to use
        the mouse wheel to increase or decrease the size of a web page.
        This setting can help you better read a page, or make text fit on the
        screen.</li>
    </ul>

    <p>Use the <strong>Mouse wheel speed</strong> option to adjust the
      responsiveness of the wheel. To reverse the scroll direction, use negative
      numbers or select <strong>Reverse direction</strong>.</p>

    <p><strong>Note</strong>: Each modifier key can be assigned to a different
      function.</p>
  </li>
  <li>If your mouse does not have a mode for horizontal scrolling, any setting
    in the lower panel <strong>Horizontal scrolling</strong> will be ignored.
  </li>
</ul>

    highlighting of an element that you select. By default, a flashing border
    will appear around the element.

      <li><strong>Border Color</strong>: Select the color of the border around
        the element.</li>
      <li><strong>Border Width</strong>: Enter the width of the border around
        the element.</li>
      <li><strong>Blink Duration</strong>: Enter the length of time
      (in milliseconds) for which you want the flashing to occur.</li>
      <li><strong>Blink Speed</strong>: Enter the time interval
        (in milliseconds) between the flashes.</li>
      <li><strong>Invert Color</strong>: Check this option to paint the
        selected element with the inverted border color. This will cause the
        whole element&mdash;including its border&mdash;to flash.</li>
