Description

The pfSense web interface has some grammatically incorrect repetition due to, what I suspect to be, a very lackadaisical use of initialisms. You will notice that on at least four different pages, the phrase "IP Protocol" is used to refer to the delineation between Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The grammatical error here is rather simple to notice by simply deconstructing the initialism. By deconstructing the initialism you will see that the deconstructed phrase reads "Internet Protocol Protocol." This is grammatically incorrect.

I've personally come up with two unique and novel solutions to this issue.

1. Change the phrase to read simply "Protocol."
2. Change the phrase to read "IP Version." (Deconstructing the initialism here may be preferable)
