Provide standard API for addons to open their preferences in the same way the Add-ons Manager UI does
Some addons add a menuitem/button to open their preferences. For the dialog-based preferences, it means getting the window.openDialog() options right (which depends on the platform). For inline preferences, it using Firefox's BrowserOpenAddonsMgr() (in browser.js, so not usable everywhere), or copying that entire function. It'd be nice to have a proper API to do all that.
WebExtensions have browser.runtime.openOptionsPage() for this.
