In bug 1267403, I implemented using a XUL panel wrapper for HTML Tooltips.

However after more testing yesterday I found two usability issues for which I don't have any easy fix for now. I will log separate bugs to track them, but in the meantime, I think they are severe enough to make the useXulWrapper option default to true.

Short summary of the issues:
- scroll events are disabled while the tooltip is opened and the mouse pointer is not on the tooltip
- mouseover and click events are not forwarded to devtools when the mouse pointer is on the filler space of the tooltip
