Bug 25658: Replace security slider with security level UI
This patch adds a new 'securitylevel' component to Tor Browser intended to replace the torbutton 'Security Slider'. This component adds a new Security Level toolbar button which visually indicates the current global security level via icon (as defined by the extensions.torbutton.security_slider pref), a drop-down hanger with a short description of the current security level, and a new section in the about:preferences#privacy page where users can change their current security level. In addition, the hanger and the preferences page will show a visual warning when the user has modified prefs associated with the security level and provide a one-click 'Restore Defaults' button to get the user back on recommended settings. Strings used by this patch are pulled from the torbutton extension, but en-US defaults are provided if there is an error loading from the extension. With this patch applied, the usual work-flow of "./mach build && ./mach run" work as expected, even if the torbutton extension is disabled.
