Trying to override a binding today, I noticed that the extensions manager and preferences window are using private (yet identical) bindings. Page Info is stealing its binding from the extensions manager. In fact, Preferences is using an !important rule to override the default radio bindings in xul.css, which I think is making it difficult to override the binding. Regardless, all three of these widgets look and act the same, and so I think they should all come from the same place. The place is probably not in preferences.xml, but someplace that makes more sense, like radio perhaps?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Oops. I don't think I was very clear about what I'm referring to. I'm talking about the radios at the top of panes, used to pick what is shown. They're referred to as a viewgroup and just radios in the extensions manager and page info, and as a paneselector and panebuttons in the preferences window.
