The <menulist> with class actionsMenu that opens when a control under the Action header of the Applications richlistbox on Settings > General > Files and Applications is activated is not labelled. The combobox pattern is expected to provide an accessible name for the control even when the listbox opened has an accessible name.

We could refer to the #actionColumn container with aria-labelledby to ensure the combobox is labeled and the purpose of opened list of options is communicated to an assistive technology user.

Since some a11y_checks will be passing with this change, we are also removing the fail-if notations from the appropriate test files in the Settings UI manifest.
