Allow browsers to read environment variables set through a pre-run executable

At the moment if an environment variable is set through a pre-run, whether it's set on a bash profile or otherwise, the browser/selenium server won't be able to read this due to how Sauce reads environment variables.

If these variables were included it could open different types of testing such as testing Gecko Media plugins on Firefox by adding the path MOZ_GMP_PATH.

    It would be fantastic to see this in Sauce Labs, but potentially way easier for Firefox to support this as a command line switch in addition to as an environment variable.
