Settings, preferences?

Another big UI nogo is the fact that you open and close the settings panel from the icon. I spent forever looking for certain settings (because of crashes) and there were times when I opened the settings from the icon, didn’t find what I needed, tried clicking on settings in the menu (maybe they are dirrent settings…?), and the settings panel go away. What happened?

What makes it even more confusing is that in the menu they are called “preferences” in the icon hepler they are called “settings”. totally confusing.
