XRE_EXECUTABLE_FILE is sensitive to case and junctions in the path used when Firefox was launched. This is passed directly through to GetInstallHash() from checking whether to update on --backgroundtask or in nsUpdateSyncManager::OpenLock.

I think we should just be able to use this method: ResolveJunctionPointsAndSymLinks on Windows, and NS_NewLocalFileWithFSRef on macOS.
