[meta] change "Get Add-ons" (discopane) to be a proper part of about:addons rather than a framed page from AMO


(Toolkit :: Add-ons Manager, enhancement)

Instead of pulling the page from AMO and messing with analytics, this page will become part of about:addons and change from "Get Add-ons" to "Recommendations".

See Also: → 1337627

Filed to cover the additional API needs for the new extension cards.

Depends on: 1539598

Release Note Request (optional, but appreciated)
[Why is this notable]: The "tab" in about:addons that is currently served from a remote server and labeled "Get Add-ons" will be re-labeled as "Recommended" (and will be a native part of about:addons, rather than pulled from an external source).
[Affects Firefox for Android]: n/a
[Suggested wording]: Find high-quality, secure extensions via the Recommended Extensions program. Look for these vetted extensions in about:addons.
[Links (documentation, blog post, etc)]: TBD

This metabug can be closed indeed; the feature has been enabled by default in bug 1555012.

Bug 1544011 cannot be closed yet; I will post a separate comment on that bug.
