User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/52.0.2743.116 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce:

Open attached PoC.

1. Click on the folder uploader directly, a normal folder upload appears.

2. Click on the 'custom UI' button, a file picker appears instead of a folder picker.

Actual results:

Does not seem like its possible to have custom UI for folder upload. This breaks the folder upload feature on Google Drive for example.

Expected results:

A folder picker should have appeared when clicking the Custom UI button.

[Tracking Requested - why for this release]:
We're trying to get webkitdirectory to FF50, and looks like this is incompatibility with Chrome implementation.
HTMLInputElement::MaybeInitPickers is wrong.
I guess I can take this.

[User impact if declined]: Some websites might not work
[Describe test coverage new/current, TreeHerder]: manual testing
[Risks and why]: Should be very safe
[String/UUID change made/needed]: NA

m-i is closed atm, so exported the patch here.

We could simplify that code a bit more, but since we want to land this to Aurora too, I kept the changes absolutely minimum.
