Release JsValues explicitly

We're having collecting of weak references mechanism in Disposer ( So they are GCed eventually though we don't know the moment exactly.

But unfortunately from C++ point of view we have to dispose all JsValues that keeping references to JsEngine/FilterEngine have to be disposed BEFORe disposing of JsEngine/FilterEngine. So we can invoke dispose explicitly just like we do for logSystem in AdblockEngine.dispose(). We can count references count while releasing JsEngine/FilterEngine smart pointer.

It's unsafe to leave it as-is (as any leaked JsValue instance will keep a reference to JsEngine/FilterEngine and prevents them from being released and they continue to work and use released callbacks from JNI which leads to crash like #5026) and we should return back to this later.

What to change

Invoke dispose for any objects which classes inherit from JsValue asap.
