Preferences explanation

I would like to know if the preferences (found in about:config or prefs.js) are explained in detail somewhere For example, what is browser.safebrowsing.provider.google.advisoryURL? What values can it have? Why can't preference entries be deleted (not just given a value of "") by the user? Thank you.
