Since IPv6 can't be routed to our proxy in root-proxy mode as we see in #580 and we have a trouble with filtering IPv6 when there is IPv6 network on Wi-Fi and Mobile as in #142 we are introducing blocking IPv6 traffic.

We must add low-level settings for user to be able to control this behavior - pref.net.block_ipv6 and pref.net.always_filter_ipv6.

Name it pref.proxy.block.ipv6, true by default.

Okay, I've made blocking of only external connections. Added the option to low-level group.

Now we are blocking all IPv6 TCP connections and UDP (QUICK) only for Google Chrome, but passing through all other UDP packets because users will want to use some UDP-based VPN on arbitrary ports.
