OSX: default bookmarks not used

Our Tor Project bookmarks are not used by default in the ESR52-bssed TB nightly builds (I saw this problem on OSX with the builds mentioned here: comment:1:ticket:21875).

Although our bookmarks.html file is included in browser/omni.ja, it seems to be ignored. Maybe ESR52 uses a new mechanism for configuring the default bookmarks.

Summary: default bookmarks not usedOSX: default bookmarks not used

Yes, it is OSX-specific. The mechanism that Firefox uses when creating a new profile (which only happens on OSX with Tor Browser) must have changed.

Mozilla changed the location of the default bookmarks within browser/omni.ja and also added them to the language packs. Here is a patch:
