[wayland] when dual monitor setup (hi+normal dpi) the popups are wrongly placed

|Details | Review|
The nsView::DoResetWidgetBounds use nsDeviceContext::GetDesktopToDeviceScale()  for getting the scale of the monitor by using  FindScreen method. The FindScreen does not work under Wayland because we cannot obtain window absolute position from the server. Because the scale returned by GetDesktopToDeviceScale() returns always 1 or 2 (depends on which monitor is primary) it leads to wrong popup menu placement under wayland.  https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/9e7995b3c384945740985107a4de601b27904718/view/nsView.cpp#363  https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/9e7995b3c384945740985107a4de601b27904718/gfx/src/nsDeviceContext.cpp#725
In the Wayland we don't know the absolute position of the window, so we cannot use it to determine on which monitor the window is. We need to use parent window scale factor to scale popup windows, otherwise popup windows will be wrongly placed in the hi+normal dpi monitor setup.

I'm sorry, but this bug has made the latest Nightly completely unusable due to bug 1493081, and leaving it in its current state isn't acceptable. I'll have to back this out and retrigger Nightlies.
