User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2454.26 Safari/537.36 Firefox for Android Steps to reproduce: Created an add-on with > <em:optionsURL>chrome://addon/content/preferences.html</em:optionsURL> > <em:optionsType>3</em:optionsType> in install.rdf Actual results: There is no button to open add-on preferences in about:addons on Firefox for Android. Only disable & uninstall buttons are shown. The issue has been there for as long as I remember and persists in fennec nightly (v42). Expected results: Fennec should automatically render preferences button to open optionsURL just like in desktop Firefox.

Do we think this makes sense on FxAndroid?
How could it not make sense if XUL is officially being phased out?
We do support options.xul. See a demo add-on here: https://github.com/leibovic/options-kitchen-sink/ I'm just not sure that we support the optionsType 3. There are lots of problems with our current implementation, and I have this bug on file to track them and where I proposed a solution to get rid of XUL: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1079466
Depends on: 1079466
Like I said, optionsType=3 is supported on desktop but not on mobile. And options.xul is not a solution because XUL is deprecated.
Inline options of add-ons built by jpm never worked on fennec, even though cfx has been deprecated for quite a while.
Firefox 57 only WebExtensions are supported, and their options work.
