Inconsistencies with visual cue used for remote controlled browser session

When tracking protection is enabled, the visual cue we use to
indicate that a browser session is being remote controlled has
some inconsistencies. The white background we add the identities
box causes the striped orange bar that covers the address bar’s
background to be broken off, because the tracking protection icon
which is not part of the identities box is to the left of it.

I tried some various approaches, and I think we should just drop
the white background for the identities box in this case. This
gives a more consistent look to the address bar.

When the browser session is remote controlled, a visual cue is
shown to the user by turning the background of the address bar
striped yellow. This is to warn the user that it is not safe to
use this session for any sensitive browsing.

With the relatively recent addition of the tracking protection icon
to the far-most left of the address bar, the orange background is
broken off by the white background of the identities box. This gives
a slight inconsistency when the browser is under remote controlled
(i.e. when --marionette is passed).

This patch removes the white background of the identities box so
that the striped orange background covers the entire surface of
the address bar. This gives a slightly more coherent visual impression.
