safebrowsing is checking addresses against known "bad" sites. this list
will be retrieved from google periodicaly. This is the "enumerate
badware" aproach which is inheriently flawed. If you use active blockers
like noscript and alike, you gain much more security (eg, the "whitelist
known good stuff" aproach)

you may want to turn this off since it may leak information to outside.

Those are state settings for torbutton. i dont think you should change them.

cookies disabled on mac. good for privacy. you may want to use a plugin
like cookiesafe to manage cookies in a more controlable way (the "always
off" doesnt work for some sites).

This decides if you get a warning before open urls that will be handled
by external application. Eg, click a mailto://-link and it opens your
mail-application. Your mac will open mail and news without asking if you
click a link.
