100% agree... "-D 1080" is all what you need. I like to add -p 443 to in order to make the SSH traffic less visible ;)

Then to avoid DNS leaks under Firefox, just make sure to set the two following variables to 1 under about:config.

network.proxy.network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = 1
network.proxy.socks_remote_dns = 1

When I Wireshark the above config I can only see HTTPS traffic even when typing non-working URLs.
