Add follow redirects back into WHATWG XHR specification:

As mentioned on this post:

The intent is to put back in the followRedirects feature which was a security
improvement from the client side to prevent calls following to unexpected URL

The expected result when the AJAX request returns a redirect code and
followRedirects is disabled then it should return a network error.

This should follow the same definition as the original specification:

However it shouldn't return a response if there is a redirect just a network
error to the callbacks.
