#871 Standard.* settings aren't properly documented



I am using privoxy 3.0.19-2 on debian wheezy.
It is worked as expected, although I'd like to change the configuration.
It's the gif deanimation that I'd like to disable.
Unfortunately I do not really get how to do that.
There are some macros in the default.action file, standard.Cautious, standard.Medium and standard.Advanced that contain +deanimate-gifs{last}.
I was unable to find out under which circumstances these macros are used and I don't want to just remove the deanimate-gifs lines.

I'd really appreciate hints on where I find documentation about those macros.
Thanks in advance for your time.

    The standard.* settings are used by the CGI editor and offered as "default values" for the first action section in an action file.

    Opening http://config.privoxy.org/edit-actions-list?&f=0 (with "enable-edit-actions 1") should give you an example.

    Unless you actually use the CGI editor (and press the "Set to ..." button), the standard.* settings have no effect.

    Thus, in your example, you should be able to ignore them and concentrate on the offending sections shown by:

    As far as documentation is concerned, my impression is that the standard.* settings aren't properly documented at the moment and I'll try to fix this in the near future.
