As part of UX's goal to eliminate Firefox's separate management windows in favor of in-content designs, the Preferences window should be moved into the content area.
Such a move provides several benefits for users. First, it removes yet another easy-to-lose window. It means that changing preferences in Firefox can be an identical and easy experience across all devices, including tablet computers. It also means that more interactive portions of Preferences, such as about:permissions, can be integrated with the rest of preferences.

- the organization of the preferences - it is *not* a goal of this project to move the modal dialogs accessed through the current preferences window to be rendered in-content. Those dialogs, e.g. the Saved Passwords dialog, will remain as a modal dialog for this project.
