Firefox : Add keywords in the .desktop file

Bug Description

This is, for example, needed for a good Unity integration in French.

In French you can't find Firefox in the Unity dash if you type "browser" because it was translated to "navigateur" in the .desktop .
This is the correct French translation, but some people still use the word "browser" in their daily life. So we need a way to add it (and similar) as keywords in the desktop file so that they can easily find Firefox in the dash.

The .desktop file is already translated downstream on a strange fashion (see [1]) so I'm not sure if I can just submit a patch as explained here[2].

Note: there is the same problem in Thunderbird
