[PATCH]fdo#52636:VIEWING: unintuitive Heading for 'Enable experimental Features

Here is an updated patch. Also here is a link for everyone to see what we
could make Java tab look like:


1. Changed name to "Advanced"
2. Shrunk Java dialog box
3. Added bottom section for experimental features

This would clear up enough space in the general tab for me to move the
measurement units over.

I've cc'ed the ux team since this is now a visual thing also. Please
respond to the dev mailing list as I'll be pushing out a few patches
corresponding to these changes.
