SOCKS socket does not support spaces and other special characters

While working on #20111, Kathy and I found a bug in Firefox's SOCKS socket support: special characters, including spaces, are not decoded before the configured path is placed inside a Unix domain sockaddr. This causes the SOCKS connection to not work at all when a Unix domain socket is used with a path that contains spaces (or other URL-special characters).

We are working on a patch which we will also want to uplift to Firefox. I will file a Firefox bug later.

Applied with commit 48a73d262e04c2a90cf660445568cbcf01e83b9c to tor-browser-45.4.0esr-6.5-1. The patch got approved upstream and looks good to me as well.
