+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #454300 +++

Per bug 398938 (this bug would likely have to be fixed first before the
functionality is removed), we should remove the locale-specific subdomains Firefox client-generated URLs.

With the same applying to Thunderbird, of course. Of the instances we have left in all-thunderbird.js:

extensions.blocklist.detailsURL handled by bug 597982
extensions.getMore*URL handled by bug 571759

the remaining two by this bug.

Bug 454300 got back-ported to 1.9.2 only, so we'll do the same here, but I'll need to do a separate patch so that the prefs on bug 571759 are handled on branch.

Yeah, just to clarify, I've been told before that dictionaries/ is the right place to got to (and this syncs us with what Firefox currently does).

1.9.2 fix

This patch has a few extra changes in it as the branch has some extra values. It doesn't do the extensions.getMore* prefs as they were never done for Firefox, so I've just left them as they are.
