Please review the fix for jdk11.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8205324
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~serb/8205324/webrev.00
CSR: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8205355

This fix is a part of the effort to drop support of applets/webstart. 
This change will delete part of the spec in java.awt.Desktop.browse(URI) 
which currently is a no-op. This code used sun.awt.DesktopBrowse which 
previously was initialized by the plugin/webstart or appletviewer.

Best regards, Sergey.
