    [CB-7371] Fixed: app crash after phone language change

    The main reason of this behavior is the config.xml, origin="*" tag, specifies access to
all kind of resources on the network and makes the whiteList object on the WhiteList class
a null object, indicating that when origin="*", there's no whiteList, all is allowed.
    When it tries to resume the application it checks:
    if (url.startsWith("file://") || url.startsWith("javascript:") || whitelist.isUrlWhiteListed(url))
    This condition passes and triggers the load for 'about:blank'
    The condition passes because, whitelist.isUrlWhiteListed(url) statement returns true.
     When the origin="*" is processed by the WhiteList class, it sets a null to the whiteList
object, which it should contain the access to resources allowed, however when whitelist.isUrlWhiteListed(url)
it returns a true if the whiteList object is null, therefore the condition passes and continues
to the loadurl method on webClient, stopping the application, because of the 'about:blank'
    Adding another condition along with that statement for when whiteList = null, but url=
about:blank, in that way it won't be able to load the url.
