Some tests depend on this behavior.
Some pages can be either remote or non-remote depending on the current
remote type, so we need to take that into account when updating the
remote type.
Gecko doesn't support creating a remote browser from a non-remote
browser when there is an opener, so create a non-remote browser when
there is an opener, even in multiprocess mode.

1. Keep current remote type if possible; r=geckoview-reviewers,snorp

2. Don't start in remote mode when there is opener; r=geckoview-reviewers,snorp
