Prevent accidently blocking images via SeaMonkey mailcontext and context popup menu.

User now and then manage to block images via the popup menu. The block and unblock items are just too near to view and copy image and if you are a bit careless this happens.
I think moving them under a separater should fix this for almost all cases. Some users might still need them so we donÄt want to remove the items.

Also a comment in the mailcontext popup states wrongly that this is not used and the enable/disable code there causes the exact problems mentioned with working only on second open so update this too.

Can we not just make use of the nsContextMenu's shouldShowSeparator function here rather than having a duplicate one in mailnews?

r/a=me with that addressed

Version 1.1. Use shouldShowSeparater from nsContextMenu.js and update its comment and body (var -> let).
