Backport to UCC 2.1

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #46716 +++

univention-ucc-proxy-settings applies proxy settings that are set via UCR to the firefox default settings.

Currently, no proxy settings are applied at all to firefox (v59.x)

Apparently, the mechanism in firefox has changed, so only 'pref' Options are allowed in /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/*js files. Proxy settings that are distributed via UCR should not be changeable by the end user, so the 'lockPref' option should be used.

https://developer.mozilla.org/de/Firefox/Nutzung_in_Unternehmen shows that one has to configure any other setting than 'pref' in a cfg file in the firefox binary dir /usr/lib/firefox
