This applies to configuration for several different types of things, but I'll use profile as an example.
In manage profile, you have several different actions that can take place to the right of each profile title.
Right now when you click on one of those actions like view/edit, settings, preview...then when you're done with that you have to come back to the manage profile screen to select something else. Instead of doing that, once I go into say, view/edit I'd like to have all those options as tabs, or buttons if that makes more sense, at the top. Then when I'm done with the settings, I can click on the preview tab and go there directly instead of having to go back to the manage groups every time I want to do something else to that profile.
Something similar would also apply when editing the profile fields. There are four options for each field. When I edit a field, it would be great to have tabs with Edit, Preview, Disable, and Delete at the top of the page once i've gone in to edit it. So that when I am ready to preview I don't have to go back to the view/edit fields for the profile and then click on preview field, and then when I need to make a change I have to go back to the view/edit fields page for that profile and then click on Edit for the field. Saves one whole step.
Not to mention that it also saves the aggravation of scrolling if you're working with profiles or fields that are not visible on the page.
