Initial Tor Browser launch dialog should handle transparent proxies that filter based on port number

In older packages (pre-4.0?), Vidalia supported configuring for specific outbound ports, having in mind transparent proxies that allow outbound connections only on those specific ports (usually 80 and 443). The new packages don't support this scheme.

Please add support for such transparent proxies.

This feature was present for a while in the Tor Network Settings setup wizard after we removed Vidalia, but it was removed in order to simplify the user interface. Please see ticket:11405#comment:7 for our rationale.

Are you experiencing a problem where Tor Browser fails to connect?
