Right now, the reference to marketplace is only shown if there are no apps installed. We should persist this link permanently on the about:apps page to allow a user to easily get to the marketplace when viewing their apps they have installed.

I think this page needs a small redesign to better match our other about pages anyway. Something kinda like this. Note we have that exact same icon in the upper right on about:addons, except there it links to AMO. Here it can link to the marketplace. And we should probably at the same time fix this disconnect between addons and apps using the same icon?

In both cases, its not obvious its a link. So we need to think of/design something a bit smarter. Add an arrow, or make it look more like a clickable button?

Looking at this again. I really want to slip things off into a base style, so that's what I'm doing.

I want this for any previews. This is the simplest way to get to it I think. I'll post some screenshots....

No apps. This text might be too small? We can try this and increase it if it is.
Much cleaner look and feel overall. I like it.

This gets us much closer to the other about pages. We can tweak more in followups.
