Describe the solution you'd like

All of the following "General" sections should be renamed to the name of their parent categories, as follows:

Searches
User Interface
Notifications
Logging
Shares
Downloads
Uploads
Ban List
Geo Block
Now Playing
Away Mode
Censor List
Auto-Replace
URL Catching
Completion
Text-to-Speech

Additional context

Generally speaking, when providing technical support to users remotely, it is difficult to describe "goto the the General category at the top, then User Interface", because user's don't know the difference between Categories and Sections, so they say "I see the General section, but I can't find the User Interface section in there" because of course, there on the wrong page, which are all called "General". It is highly confusing for everybody.

These captions serve as a specific heading identifier for screen reading and tracking, so they should say something useful, incase the category tree is skipped for some reason.

This is an accessibility issue, see link:
https://www.w3.org/TR/wcag2ict/#navigation-mechanisms-descriptive

Success Criterion 2.4.6: Headings and Labels: "When headings are clear and descriptive, users can find the information they seek more easily, and they can understand the relationships between different parts of the content more easily. Descriptive labels help users identify specific components within the content."
