Some extensions have lots of shortcuts, there could just be a lot of options (like Tree Style Tab [1]) or a lot of empty commands to be redefined dynamically in the extension (like Flagfox [2]).

We should come up with a way to handle these cases. Likely candidates are limiting the number of commands shown with an option to expand, or hiding commands without a description or shortcut (or both).

The plan is to do two things: Move the commands that have shortcuts to the top of the list, and only show a limited number of commands with an option to expand.

Commands that have a shortcut will be listed first in the extension shortcut UI.

Limit the number of commands shown per extension in the shortcuts UI. A show
more button is included to show all of the commands for a given extension if
there are more than the limit.

With this bug 1521826 VERIFIED FIXED, should bug 1325692 (NEW Unassigned) be updated?

I'm not sure how the two are related. I don't think this will change anything for that bug.
