We need to hide the Adobe GMP on Windows XP. i.e. we need to revert bug 1234099.

This is because we detected that we're getting lots of crashes with unencrpyted decoding using the Adobe GMP, and we only use it on Windows XP for unencrypted decoding, so we should not show it in the UI.
Posted patch Hide Adobe GMP on Windows XP (obsolete) — Splinter Review
We need to revert bug 1234099 so that we don't show the plugin in
the add-on manager on Windows XP, since now that unencrypted decoding
via Adobe GMP is disabled, we won't be using the Adobe GMP.

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/regressing bug #]: Download of Adobe Gecko Media Plugin/Content Decryption Module on Windows XP
[User impact if declined]: Adobe CDM will be downloaded and appear in the add-on manager, but won't be used by Firefox or do anything. Will confuse users.
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: We have tests for this
[Risks and why]: Fairly low; this is a revert to previous behaviour
[String/UUID change made/needed]: None
