urlclassifier{2,3}.sqlite in firefox profiles is far larger than it needs to be

Description

These files grow to about 40-50MB, which is a fair bit of space, even in the era of 2GB quota.

Upstream's considerably shrunk the file, so this'll probably be less of a concern in a few cycles.

The patch has finally landed, so in a release or so, #1109 will have fixed this for free. Also setLocalDiskCache can be punted from debathena-firefox-extension when that happens.

It's in Firefox 21 now. We should have this for free now, via XDG_CACHE_HOME. Also the disk cache stuff in debathena-firefox-extension can get phased out.
