Bug 23104: Add a default line height compensation

Many fonts have issues with their vertical metrics. they
are used to influence the height of ascenders and depth
of descenders. Gecko uses it to calculate the line height
(font height + ascender + descender), however because of
that idiosyncratic behavior across multiple operating
systems, it can be used to identify the user's OS.

The solution proposed in the patch uses a default factor
to be multiplied with the font size, simulating the concept
of ascender and descender. This way all operating
systems will have the same line height only and only if the
frame is outside the chrome.
