mochitest-browser-chrome tests do not set MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_SHUTDOWN

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1440719 +++

In bug 1440719 we would like to set MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_SHUTDOWN in all tests' browser environments. That looks easy for everything except mochitest-browser-chrome, so we'll go ahead with the easy part in bug 1440719 and follow-up for browser-chrome here when we can.

As :ted observed in

Priority: P2 → P3
I tried setting MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_SHUTDOWN for browser-chrome in general but then resetting it for specific crashreporter tests, but still hit many leakcheck failures:
Severity: normal → S3
