History

Is this intended for clients or for the firewall itself?

Clients using the DNS forwarder wouldn't hit any of these options, and dnsmasq queries all configured servers at the same time and uses the fastest response, so the timeout values aren't quite as relevant.

Over eight years ago? Persistent additions to "resolv.conf" is a fairly essential feature. Moreover, these exact options seem necessary to reduce 30second WebGUI timeout when WAN connectivity is not available. Reducing that timeout would be extremely helpful for building simulated networks with VirtualMachines running PFSense!
