 Bug #26319 addressed the issue not packaging the Firefox DMG or EXE during
 the `mach package` step by using `mach build stage-package`. However, we
 still have an additional patch which fixes the error where the build fails
 trying to find the NSIS file for creating the uninstaller:

 31:23.55 update.locale
 31:25.74 cp: cannot stat 'instgen/helper.exe': No such file or directory
 31:25.74 /var/tmp/build/firefox-
 a0efd2fcd6e9/toolkit/mozapps/installer/windows/nsis/makensis.mk:99: recipe
 for target 'uninstaller' failed
 31:25.74 make[5]: *** [uninstaller] Error 1

 See the patch in `8d1c4c396034b2a` (`projects/firefox/nsis-
 uninstall.patch`) which prevents the uninstaller from being built.

 We should find a proper way to fix this so that we don't lose track of it.
