@leonardder Thanks, now I can delete the appModule I wrote for this.

By the way, I think as it is now, that browse mode is also not triggered for content that is explicitly set to have a document role. For example, in some parts of VS Code it is nice to have browse mode by default, documentation/release notes/extension pages etc which are rendered as HTML documents.

This reverts commit 480950f.

Removes the no-longer needed appmodule.
Follow up of #10903 (removed the no-longer needed code - appmodule)
Reverts #9828 (creating the appmodule)

Changes to VS Code fixing #10888 have now made it stable. Therefore, remove the appModule which worked around these issues.
Note: Users can continue to force disable browse mode by default using a profile automatically triggered when entering vsCode that unchecks "Enable browse mode on page load" on the browse mode settings panel.
