As far as I can tell, we can save a bit of footprint by adding
disablehistory="true" disablesecurity="true" to the view source browsers...
additionally this saves us having to exclude view-source URLs from history.

Proposed patch

Actually, there is an rfe to allow browsing via view-source (by linkifying all
URIs; clicking a link would show the source of that link).  Find that bug and
add a comment that whoever implements that may need to remove the
disablehistory here, and rs=bzbarsky.

Also, we need to keep manually excluding view-source URLs from history, imo,
for the same reasons (and because they can happen in web pages).
