[Bug 1685439] [NEW] Firefox 53 conflicts with window manager theme

Public bug reported:

Firefox overrides the default window manager font color in some of its pop up windows and buttons.
This leads to unreadable buttons text.

See the top of the attached Screenshot1.png for an example: The "Quit"
"Save" "Save and Quit" text is white (should be black). Hovering over
the "Do no ask next time" also turns that text white.

Problem appeared after update of firefox:amd64 (from
52.0.2+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1 to 53.0+build6-0ubuntu0.14.04.1).

Using the default Firefox theme or the other 2 new "compact" provided
themes produces the same result.

On Xubuntu 14.04 with XFCE 4.10
In the snapshot above the XFCE theme is the standard "Adwaita" but the problem can be reproduced with other themes.

Changing the XFCE theme when firefox is open sometimes "fixes" the issue
until Firefox is restarted.
