accept non-utm params in osx attributions

|Details | Review|
Based on bug 1511104 comment 10, it is unlikely we can get utm params passed through our web properties, but we could strip the "utm" part of the param name and make it work that way. However, the attribution code needs to accept either to make that work.
I see that these changes are in an OSX-specific block. This is not the first time we have wished that we could pass some specific attribution parameters to a download. For example, imagine a scenario where we want to specifically segment some set of clients for a download or install experiment, so we want to put a variation into their attribution fields at the point of download. The issues raised in bug 1511104 comment 10 would make doing so troublesome. If we could do this with "utm-free" parameters as this patch allows, that would be great. Is it possible this patch's scope could be widened slightly to allow the "utm-free" parameters to work for attribution regardless of OS?

Since this will require uplift to 65, I'd prefer to minimize the change to what is necessary. I'd be happy to do a followup bug for windows that we could land in 66.
We could also expand this to take params other than just the source|medium|campaign|content for non-utm params if you feel that would really be useful, but again, a followup bug.

Is this code covered by automated tests?: Yes Has the fix been verified in Nightly?: Yes Needs manual test from QE?: Yes If yes, steps to reproduce: A full set of QE tests are outlined in bug 1511071 List of other uplifts needed: None Risk to taking this patch: Low Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): covered by automated tests, minimal impact if anything were to go wrong which would only result in return to amo not working on osx, resulting in different content being shown to the user. String changes made/needed: none

Comment on attachment 9032227 [details] Bug 1515153 - make osx attributions work with both utm and plain params, r?Mossop [Triage Comment] Fixes broken attributions on OSX. While Return to AMO isn't shipping in 65 at this point, Shell tells me this is still important to take. Thanks for including a test. Approved for 65.0b7.
