Browse files simplifications, part 2

The current behavior of adding a new entry to the session history is
removed, with the "replace" parameter behavior made the only option. To
fix #3885, we now reuse history.replaceState()'s history model, which
keeps the document's URL and the history entry URL in sync.

At the same time, we restrict the history state update (including
setting the document's URL) to be only run with fully active documents.
Firefox already bails out for non-fully active documents (including
those that are active documents), and it's not expected that there would
be much usage of the URL of non-fully active documents anyway.

This allows us to additionally remove the seldom implemented "replace"
parameter in, whose behavior is now the default
(aligning with with Chrome and Safari). The IDL is modified accordingly.
