    Bug 40030: Install HTTPS Everywhere and NoScript addons on startup
    
    HTTPS Everywhere is installed as a builtin extension and NoScript as
    a regular AMO addon. To avoid unnecessary I/O we only install NoScript
    the first time, and rely on the browser addon updating mechanism for
    keeping up with new versions. This is the same behaviour that was
    implemented in the Fennec-based Tor Browser, where it was installed
    as a "distribution addon", which also only occurred once.
    
    Bug 40062: HTTPS Everywhere is not shown as installed
    
    Also 40070: Consider storing the list of recommended addons
    
    This implements our own AddonsProvider, which loads the list of
    available addons from assets instead of fetching it from an
    endpoint. In this list, we replace https-everywhere by
    our https-everywhere-eff, so that the EFF one is shown as installed
    in the addons list and the AMO one is not displayed.
    
    Also, we hide the uninstall button for builtin addons.
