Bug 1366681 - Try to move Add-On to the first level menu

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/144780/#review148700

LGTM.

FYI: In the past we did this for history and bookmarks. Back then we moved this move behind a switchboard flag ("bookmark-history-menu") to run an A/B experiment and see how this affects usage.

Sebastian: Thanks, Good to know! Let me ask product manager to see whether should we involve switchboard here.
according to the funnel meeting today: YES. it'll be great to use switchboard.
I updated the patch to use SwitchBoard. For a target user, to display AddOns menu item in top-level menu. Otherwise, keep the menu item is original place.

Still don't know how to clear review flag. (D'oh)

Do we have any kind of telemetry to see if this helped add-on usage?

Also I'm wondering .. with the move to WebExtensions in 57 - isn't there a high chance that we annoy users: We encourage them to install add-ons and them we might take them away in 57 (if they are using the legacy API).
In `BrowserApp.onOptionsItemSelected` we have telemetry to record which menu item is clicked, I think we can compare the usage between *R.id.addons* and *R.id.addons_top_level*.

yeah I am also wondering about that. We planned to do this months ago since we wanted to promote WebExtensions, and it is likely we don't have enough resource to take care of this topic anymore. Joe, do you have any idea?

No longer depends on: 1381384
I believe we have other telemetry to understand Android add-on usage

"with the move to WebExtensions in 57 - isn't there a high chance that we annoy users: We encourage them to install add-ons and them we might take them away in 57 (if they are using the legacy API)."

I'd like to hear what Add-on team thinks about this as they've been preparing for this. I believe we should have alternative WebExtentions for users if their existing add-on aren't available (at least the top ones)

There is a discussion about an incompatible badge on mobile pages here: https://github.com/mozilla/addons-frontend/issues/2754. If you feel it will make a difference, feel free to delay it to 57 when everything will be WebExtensions only.
