[meta] support ux exposing how extensions change Firefox


(WebExtensions :: Frontend, task, P3)

This is the big tracking bug to implement a user interface for explaining to users what the extensions they have enabled do. Some examples:
* which extension is currently controlling about:home or about:newtab
* which extension has which key binding
* which extension is using proxy settings
* which permissions you have granted to each extension
* etc...

The list is quite long and will grow as we add new APIs to Firefox. There's probably a few steps to this project, but the first phase is probably to stand up a UI in about:addons that just shows some of these settings. The second phase would be to allow users to select or pick and choose from these settings.

To have a change to keep about:addons sane, it would make sense to not pollute the add-ons listing any further and see if we can put this all on a seperate page, maybe.
