mozilla: handle wpa_bss_get_ssid() returning NULL

On my Endless OS system running 2.5.2, I see the following crash
reasonably often:

    #0  0x00007fdc12e57300 in g_bit_lock () from /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

In frame 2, 'variant' is NULL. In 2.5.2, get_ssid_from_bss looks like

    static gboolean
    get_ssid_from_bss (WPABSS *bss)
            GVariant *variant = wpa_bss_get_ssid (bss);

            return variant_to_string (variant, NULL);

Since 2.5.2, bdaf6069 added a NULL check
to this function – which I think would fix my crash. Then
3b7a7d2a removed this NULL check again
without explanation!

It seems that, in practice, wpa_bss_get_ssid() can return NULL, so we
must handle this case.
