In order to help users find what they're looking for, let's make the Settings menu easier to navigate.

 The new Settings menu screen lists the following:

* Sync 
Sync your tabs, bookmarks, passwords, history
(will file sync-state display later)

* Privacy
Control passwords, cookies, tracking, data

* Tabs
Always restore/Don't restore after quitting Firefox

* Mozilla
About Firefox, FAQs, data choices

* Download updates automatically [Previously in Customize]
Always/Only over Wi-Fi/Never

* Import from Android [previously in Customize] 
Import bookmarks and history from the native browser

* Developer Tools
Remote debugging, paint flashing


------------------
I'm not sure how I feel about the cells that display the choice made rather than the description (the user might not be aware that they tap to change/see other choices). For now let's keep as is.
Might as well set the relnote request before we forget about this.

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]:
  We'll be broadly reorganizing Fennec's settings menu to make it easier to navigate.

[Suggested wording]:
  TBD.

[Links (documentation, blog post, etc)]:
  TBD.

Doesn't this only really matter for non Play Store release builds? I question if it needs to be top-level.

> Doesn't this only really matter for non Play Store release builds?

Yes. It'll be automatically hidden at runtime for non-Updater builds.

> I question if it needs to be top-level.

Considering only the interests of users who'll see it -- i.e., non-Play -- I'd contend that it's something that those users will care about, and either want to find or would benefit from stumbling across.

To flip the question around: is it so unimportant that we should hide it away? This is something that controls whether you get updates, and how much you pay for your phone bill this month.
