changed setting

We have changed two of our settings.
* Show search engine suggestions is now disabled by default.
* We have combined the “Home Page” with the “New Tab Page” setting – if the user has enabled a custom URL as the home page, the same URL should be used for the new tab.

If you prefer something that was already extensively tested, stick with the main Vivaldi Android package.
