"SOCKS Host" cannot be set to port 9050 while "Use HTTP Proxy for all
protocols" is set to port 8118.  Firefox changes the SOCKS port to match
the 8118 of the http proxy setting.

Looking at the source, the "use for all protocols" checkbox is not used in
the code that actually selects which proxy to use.  That checkbox is just
a user interface element to save the user some typing.  So I am leaving
this box unchecked and setting the SOCKS to port 9050.
