Firefox "artifact builds" for Mac OS X

Right now, a Mac OS X Desktop Firefox builds takes about 20 minutes on fast hardware. By downloading pre-built binary artifacts, we get a functioning Mac OS X build in about 2 minutes. The resulting "artifact build" allows to quickly develop the JavaScript, XHTML, and CSS parts of the browser (but not the compiled C++ parts of the browser).

Never build libxul again!
