Description

Prefetch in the network predictor got implemented (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1016628). We should make sure it adheres to our Tor Browser design guidelines. Having a test for that might be worth.

"Adhering to our Tor Browser design guidelines" could mean as well making sure it is (still disabled), see: #16633 for the predictor isolation.

Flipping the pref back to false as https://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-esr52/rev/c6897adc4037 did prevents mPrefetches from getting populated which effectively results in prefetches in the predictor being disabled. Thus, move this to ff59-esr.
