String apps/settings/settings.properties:fxa-overview says:
"A Firefox Account lets you use features like Find My Device and apps like the Firefox Marketplace." 

Logging in with Fx Account does not also logging into Marketplace, which still uses Persona login for now, and users are not required to login before installing apps. This sounds a bit misleading?

Also to add, in Firefox Accounts page, it lists Marketplace and Find My Device under the section 'Signed In.'  This does not change, even when the Find My Device is deactivated, and as Peter says, Marketplace is currently not using FxA credential.  should we change the word 'Signed In' to something else?

Note that marketplace is under the process of implementing Firefox Accounts. Until that gets fully implemented and tested, Marketplace will continue to use Persona.
To answer some of the issues above:
On B2G devices 2.0+, logging into Firefox Accounts logs you into Marketplace as it is a device level Sign in.  You can't individually sign out of Marketplace.
On B2G devices <2.0, Android, Desktop - a web login is used and you need to sign into Marketplace.  

The work is not yet complete on Marketplace, so MP still uses Persona to date.  Solving Marketplace work for Firefox Accounts Bug1007956 should solve this.

I don't know why the settings app would have sign-in status by service rather than a setting for Find My Device (being active or not).  You can't sign into and sign out of Marketplace separately.
Depends on: 1007956
