Webapps support for FF for Android will not be ready in time for FF 15, so let's disable the functionality for it. We need to disable the install prompt and the management of apps.

Note for tracking nom - Android WebRT triage decided that we will not support web apps for FF for Android in FF 15, but we do not want this functionality active.

Assigning to blassey for now as the point person for disabling when the time comes. Brad, if there's someone else who could/should be on this feel free to re-assign to them.

Wes can track this. Take a look at what desktop did to disable. We probably want to mimic that.

Desktop is bug 772638.
Attached patch PatchSplinter Review
Webapps.manifest register the navigator properties, so I think (based on the desktop patch) this is all we need.

Note this just kills navigator.apps stuff. I didn't remove about:apps. If that's wanted please say something.

There is no UI to get to it, and it will probably just fail to work without some of these navigator methods.
