How it works ATM:
If a user want to configure an extension that have options (e.g. NoScript), the user needs to go to about:addons and click on "Options" at the extension he want to configure.

IMHO with webkit it would be nice, if the options of the extensions move to about:preferences where the user finds the options of FF, too.

IMHO a separator on the left side under "Updates" and then pages in alphabetical order with the extensions names that have options would look nice.

The extension can provide a link using the https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/runtime/openOptionsPage API if they want to make it easier. 

We want to encourage people to go to about:addons and this provides a nice seperation from about:preferences. Not sure what would be gained by this.
