 > We will have to look at whether a patch is needed to prevent this or
 whether we can just change a preference (I cannot remember whether setting
 app.update.enabled = false will still allow manual update checks).

 Our review of the code as well as some testing confirms that setting
 app.update.enabled to false will disable the automatic (timer-based)
 update checks while still allowing manual checks.  Mike, do you want Kathy
 and/or me to create a patch for 000-tor-browser.js or do you just want to
 add the following line yourself?
   pref("app.update.enabled", false);
