[Firefox Mobile] Opening settings from first-run page doesn't work on Android

See, the link to settings on the first-run page doesn't work on Android. In fact, it causes really ugly side-effects as it tries to open a XUL dialog - something the Firefox Mobile doesn't really support.

The problem is firstRun.js running UI.openFiltersDialog() for this link. The best solution would probably be changing UI.openFiltersDialog() implementation - on Firefox Mobile it should show Addons Manager's inline preferences.

I've noticed that BrowserOpenAddonsMgr method is not available in firefox mobile.

Seams like Firefox for Mobile don't have a method to show options page of specific Add-on,

Looks like the options pages are being loaded during about:addons page load only:

Anyway there is a bug in Bugzilla about creation of standard way of opening Addon Manager page:

For now maybe we can disable Acceptable Ads by just clicking on disable link and show a notification to user that the AA has been disabled.
