Description

Currently, the app loads about:blank, then autoloads www.mozilla.org website.  For the Nimbledroid pageload test, it needs to wait until the mozilla website is loaded, then the URL needs to be entered, which is extra 5-6 seconds on Moto G5.  

If the app, upon launch, unpacks geckoview and stays in about:blank, both the pageload and manual testing of geckoview would be much easier.  It may also prevent bug 1500559.
P1 because No-Jun and Vicky say this bug is important for testing geckoview_example on Nimbledroid.
Emily said she would look at this bug.

This is to prevent the load of the Mozilla homepage on startup.

My guess would be that the app will then simply load "about:blank" each time the activity is destroyed and recreated.
