The “Start using Sync…” link in Dev Edition under General Prefs links to a deprecated Sync page about:accounts.

It should instead link directly to this signin page.

about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=menupanel

We should give it a proper entry point name though. NIing RFkelly for that.

I don't think we have a terribly consistent naming scheme for these, but how about:

   about:accounts?action=signin&entrypoint=dev-edition-setup

SGTM and looks like a trivial change at https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/components/preferences/in-content/main.js#256
