Add option for suppressing the "Open with" option in the download dialog

There should be a way to disable the "Open with" option in the download dialog since it is not working (and hence confusing) when sandboxing (e.g. AppArmor) prevents the Tor Browser from starting external applications. See this tbb-dev@ thread and this Tails ticket for the full story.

firefox.js is the wrong file for this preference. Could you add it to 000-tor-browser.js probably below pref("", ""); and add a comment explaining a bit what it does?

Okay, I went ahead and made the changes I had in mind as a fixup commit (721f255ca93675c6a3caf2e75678978c8a4db72c) on-top of the patch (c3aafe32d28271e04b616eaf92f826fc70c4627a) on tor-browser-38.4.0esr-5.5-1; I applied both to the stable branch as well.
