Explicit proxy configuration NOT transparent using TinyProxy + Dansguardian + Mozilla
 
I'm attempting to follow Alien Bob's wiki on setting up Parental control on the Linux desktop (and doing a miserable job at it apparently)

I see no mention of the browser application (ie mozilla) needing to be specifically configured for proxy access. I assume I would select the default:
" Use system proxy setttings " or perhaps the "No Proxy" setting in the Mozilla connection setting dialog box. But I am not sure either way.

To deploy this solution, a explicit proxy using tinyproxy, what setting should I select in the Mozilla - Preferences - Network - Settings - Configure proxies to Access the Internet dialog box??

If you are looking for this setup for your workplace, I would recommend squid rather than TinyProxy. For home environment, you may want to keep things simple.
