There's currently no space in Fennec for a set of information that lives mostly, in Firefox, in menus and dialogs.  For example:  About Firefox and product credits (both in the About Firefox dialog); Release Notes (Help > Release Notes);  and Firefox Help (Help > Firefox Help).  There's also other information in Firefox, like about:rights, that has no straightforward access-point, unless you know the URL.

Fennec is not going to have a menubar, so we have to find another way to provide access to this information.  Attached is a sketch of a way to do that, via the preferences panel.

Adds the button to the preferences pane, and has it just open the current "about:" (which is similar to what we intend the destination page to be). We'll probably actually just want to override it with our custom version, I think?

Going to mark this FIXED, and file a followup on getting the actual new page in there.
