Please confirm that firefox 2.0 will allow custom network settings (IPv4). A moderator (guigs2) response implied this was the case.
Custom network settings are not an option in firefox os 1.3. A moderator (guigs2) stated that it would possibly be supplied in 2.0. I use openDNS to filter my child's internet use which require these settings.
If 2.0 will not have this feature, can I alter the network settings through the host file, and if so how?
Thank you in advance for your help.

I understand that you would like your Firefox OS device to support custom network settings so that you are able to join a network configured to use OpenDNS for filtering purposes.
What specific network settings are you looking for?
In version 2.0, you are able to join a hidden network by specifying the "SSID network name", encryption type, and password. It's also possible to import security certificates in the "Manage Network Settings".
Thank you for the prompt reply. Basically, opendns replaces the default dns server provided by the isp. This is done by specifying "address only" for the DHCP. Hopefully the attached image will be more helpful than my description!
The image is of network connection settings in a desktop computer, but android and iphone have similar menus when "modify network" is selected by long pressing the network name in android or by tapping the arrow next to the name on an iphone or ipad. (The image should have the box checked "require IPv4 address...")
OpenDNS sports 50 million users, 2% of all internet requests, and 1/3 of U.S. schools use openDNS for their security. Thank you for your time and effort to help a concerned parent who wants to avoid google and apple products and support the open source community.
