Description of Change

Depending on the version of macOS and macOS SDK, the system may install a default contentView for the dock, resulting in crashes like #14008.

This PR makes the code correctly check if a progress bar has been installed in dock.

I'm not sure the exact condition to trigger the crash, and it is weird that there isn't much people seeing it. But I'm seeing it on my machine, and I can verify this PR fixes it on my machine.

Can we record this explicitly rather than using the state of the dock tile as an implicit state variable? e.g. has_installed_indicator_ or something? & perhaps store a reference to the NSProgressIndicator?
