Recently we use default CSD mode for unknown/untested window managers. We should disable this default for release/beta builds to keep user experience on those systems.

Bug 1433869 - Disable CSD titlebar mode on untested/unknown systems for Release/Beta,

Approval Request Comment
[Feature/Bug causing the regression]: none
[User impact if declined]: CSD/Titlebar rendering will be available on untested DE/WM systems and could cause bad user experience when CSD/Titlebar is enabled by user. User may not be able to move/resize Firefox window.
[Is this code covered by automated tests?]: no
[Has the fix been verified in Nightly?]: Not applicable - we want to disable untested systems for Beta/Release only.
[Needs manual test from QE? If yes, steps to reproduce]: None
[List of other uplifts needed for the feature/fix]: Bug 1432385
[Is the change risky?]: no
[Why is the change risky/not risky?]: Not risky - it only disables CSD/Titlebar feature on untested systems which means the main Firefox window will have default titlebar/resize borders there.
[String changes made/needed]: none
