Description

see this mockup: https://people.torproject.org/~nima/ux/network-settings-bridges.jpg

few ideas to do this:

  • have a drop down menu for different types of bridges.
  • auto validate the format of the bridge
  • find a way to check if the type of the bridge matches the ip:port and let the user know if they've done something wrong.
  • confirm that the settings have been applied and Tor browser is in fact going to try to connect through the entered bridges.
  • dont put the previously entered bridges in an (or same) input text; allow them to only remove them.
  • perhaps add a date stamp of when they added the bridge? sometimes users add a bridge and they forget about it, till the bridge stops working and their connection is broken and they dont know why.

This is arguably a duplicate of #11343. See that ticket for another mockup and some related discussion.
