Patch v1.0 Proposed fix.

Fixes some whitespace irregularities.
Ports:
FX Bug 802703 - Add LSApplicationCategoryType to the Info.plist so that Firefox shows up under Productivity when sorting applications by Application Category in Finder.
Bug 736689. Disable tearing on OS X.

> We tear much worse than all other browser on OS X. I'm told this change was
> originally done for performance, but it doesn't seem to make much difference
> anymore: http://tinyurl.com/7ay3jzo. I expect because we no longer paint very
> much to the window context, we no longer see the improvement this used to
> bring. In addition, the refresh driver already coalesces paints.

Does NOT port:
* Bug 650451 - Associate the application with playable media types on Mac.
* Bug 474401 - Firefox on Mac does not register itself as being capable of opening SVG files.
