[Go Faster] Intent to ship: system add-on update to reduce e10s add-ons exposure on 51 and 52

Firefox 51 and 52 shipped with a whitelist of addons that are not marked as
mpc=true, but nonetheless were tested on Beta and deemed relatively safe to
activate for users, and so we did it.
However, telemetry and crash-stats is showing that it's probably a better
idea to revert that, and that's what this update will do: revert to e10s
being only activated for webextensions or addons explicitly marked as
mpc=true.

(The same change will be made on beta to ride for 53)

This is tracked on bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1344345
and the addon is signed and ready to be tested.

Cheers,
Felipe
