(Whiteboard: [reserve-photon-visual])

On Windows 10 we automatically increase the size of menu elements when they were accessed through touch events, emulating native behavior. Since Win 8 and Linux are also used on devices with touch screens, we should try enabling it for these platforms as well.

Definately low-priority if this needs extra platform work. But even if not, probably still low priority. Especially wrt touch on Linux.
I'm optimistic this wouldn't need extra platform work, I just didn't want to block bug 1364896 on doing the work just to find out that it does :)
