Adblock browser should deactivate redundant filter lists when choosing a combination filter list

The current default filter list is EasyList. If you want to change it to e. g. EasyList Germany+EasyList, EasyList stays ticked (and assumingly activated).

Adblock Browser

What to change

Once the user selects a different EasyList combination subscription, EasyList should be unticked and deactivated since it's redundant and probably wastes memory.

I agree with technically avoiding dublicates, but in the UI, it make sense to keep all "languages" ticked that you selected, as an Easylist combination always also keeps "English" ads blocked.

When multiple instances of the same filter (e.g. Easylist) are checked, the subscription isn't performed several times, so it doesn't really waste resources. And from the user perspective, it makes sense that the redundant filters that he ticked keeps checked.
