A detour to the settings page will come with the same problems we 
currently have with authenticating a user using Persona, e.g. if the 
detour occurs in-flow, apps will have to take care to save any state 
before redirection and we will need a way to get the original state 
back. If the detour occurs in a new tab/window/web view, the initial tab 
may be difficult to impossible to return to in certain browsers.

Technically, will in-flow redirection work on FFOS apps, or installed 
web apps on desktop/Android? Will CSP block this?
