 see this mockup: https://people.torproject.org/~nima/ux/network-settings-

 few ideas to do this:

 - have a drop down menu for different types of bridges.
 - auto validate the format of the bridge
 - find a way to check if the type of the bridge matches the ip:port and
 let the user know if they've done something wrong.
 - confirm that the settings have been applied and Tor browser is in fact
 going to try to connect through the entered bridges.
 - dont put the previously entered bridges in an (or same) input text;
 allow them to only remove them.
 - perhaps add a date stamp of when they added the bridge? sometimes users
 add a bridge and they forget about it, till the bridge stops working and
 their connection is broken and they dont know why.
