A mode general explanation of the filters you have queried about:

Filter proxy : This setting would typically allow you to channel the traffic to and from your network through a proxy server of your choice.

Filter cookies: This setting allows you to override any cookie related setting of the client web-browser. If you set the cookie filter on the firewall to block all cookies, any web-site that uses cookies would think that the user is rejecting cookies, irrespective of the settings in the web-browser.

Similarly, Java Applets and ActiveX filters allow you to control how the firewall should respond to content requiring any of them.

Hope this helps and any comments/suggestions/corrections are welcome.
