The word "chrome" in chrome://adblockplus/content/ui/firstRun.html refers to the browser's chrome which is a specific part of the browser UI (the one that contains toolbars, the addressbar, etc.). Google Chrome, on the other hand, originates from that because one of its goals was to minimize the space the chrome was occupying on the screen.

So chrome:// URLs in Firefox have nothing to do with the Chrome browser. They refer to browser-internal resources such as the browser's chrome itself which you can find at chrome://browser/content/browser.xul
