Very long lines are occasionally encountered in text web resources such
as HTML, JSON or other API data. This bumps the hardcoded limit from
200 kB to 4 MB, which should be sufficient to support more than most of
them, but still reasonable to prevent any issue.

Fixes #24957

This is relevant for fixing YouTube playback in 3.0
