Usually Gecko hides nodes marked with role=presentation from the accessibility tree. However if they are focusable it does not. Sites such as the Google Apps control panel have these focusable role=presentation edit fields all over the page. We should set isHidden manually on these nodes in the Gecko vbufBackend to stop announcing them.

Gecko vbufBackend: set isHidden on any node that is focusable and has an ARIA role of presentation. Gecko does not to this itself. Also treet them as never being interactive which stops them taking up space. Re #3781
