Comment (by mcs):

 A brief update: we tested this proposed fix by installing TB 5.0a1 on a
 Windows 7 system, enabling meek-azure, adding an app.update.url.override
 that pointed to a test server that was configured to advertise a 5.0a2
 update, and trying to update.  After the staged update failed for the
 reason mentioned in this bug's description, we deleted the downloaded
 update info. from TorBrowser\Data\Browser\Caches\firefox, we replaced
 updater.exe with one that we built with the patch, and tried to update
 again.  That time it succeeded without any trouble other than #13247.

 Pending code review, Kathy and I think we should include this fix in
 4.5.next and in the next 5.0 alpha.
