Resource option during XMPP account creation

Description

When creating an XMPP account, the resource is set to "Instantbird". Either we should set it to an empty string (in which case we should check in the protocol to what happens when no resource is supplied) or we should set it something generic like "Home" or "Work"; something that is not unique to Tor Messenger.

(Some information on Bugzilla: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=955307)

RFC 6120 Section 7.6:

   A server MUST be able to generate an XMPP resourcepart on behalf of a
   client.  The resourcepart generated by the server MUST be random (see
   [RANDOM]).

I think let's keep the resource as empty and let the server handle that. Pidgin does the same thing FWIW.
