Remove cursors greater than 32x32 device-independent pixels intersecting native UI

Custom cursors with widths or heights greater than 32 DIP will be removed if they intersect native UX (i.e. are not fully contained in the visual viewport). Large cursors are being used abusively on the web, to confuse users (see https://crbug.com/880863). Specifically, large custom cursors can be used to cover important (sometimes security related) browser native UX with an arbitrary image to mislead users into thinking they are clicking outside the content area.
