Picture of the confusing tab titles.

I want to see what addons I have, so I go to Tools/Addons. 

That brings me to a tabbed list of "Get Addons", "Extensions", "Appearance", and "Plugins". Get Addons does not show me my current addons. There is no explanation of what extensions vs plugins are and I'm not sure what appearance is doing in the middle.

Perhaps a quick fix would be to rename "extensions" to addons?

Addons is (currently) the name for extensions (what used to be called addons), appearances (themes) and plugins together. And it will later be used for others too, like dictionaries.

That's not really clear to me as a user ... It's not clear that addons is the top category for all those things.

Markus, can you respond to this one?  (Feel free to close it, but I think some explanation would be good)

We're working to fix this issue, thank you for reporting it!

In next month, you will say some changes which will make clear to everyone what is a theme, what is an extensions and how to manage it!


I will close this one as wontfix, but we're actually working on it!
