ESR24 won't work without ctypes being enabled

While trying to get a working cross-compiler for ESR24 on Mac OS X we found that Firefox is either crashing right after start-up or highly unusable if it is built with --disable-ctypes (see: comment 69ff. in #9829). Other platforms were not tested, so it might be an OSX only problem although I doubt that.

Not sure where you got the branches/commits that had ctypes disabled, but we've had them re-enabled for some time (since TBB 3.0a3 was released). Ctypes is also enabled in the FF24 branches in tor-browser.git:

We learned that enabling ctypes is necessary when getting the cross-compiler to work with vanilla ESR24. This ticket is just a reminder that if we want to disable ctypes we need to patch Firefox, too.

I think disabling c-types is not the way to go anymore.
