Block while checking whether ABP is disabled on YouTube

We use asynchronous messaging to check whether Adblock Plus is disabled before modifying the page in order to block video ads on YouTube. While waiting for the response YouTube's JavaScript already runs.

But in order to fix #1258 we have to define a property on the window object, before YouTube's JavaScript runs.

It is the same with the code disabling the history API, which we currently run no matter whether Adblock Plus is disabled on YouTube.

What to change

Use synchronous messaging to block execution while checking whether Adblock Plus is disabled on YouTube.
