The new Add-ons Manager changes the ordering of the panes to something which is probably not the best solution. IMO we should continue to use the same order as we have in the old manager and show the panes in the order of their most usage. 

That would mean: Get Addons, Extensions, Themes, Plugins, Search Engines, Languages, and Installation/Update

Asking for ux feedback.
FWIW, if it were ordered by most-used, Extensions would go first (followed by the Update panes), not Get Addons - but I'm pretty sure we don't want that.
To clarify: I'm not necessarily against re-ordering the categories, but I do think frequency of use isn't enough to determine their order.

Also, Search Results needs to be in there somewhere.
