Comment (by in spatium):

 Replying to [ticket:19890 arthuredelstein]:
 > On Tor Browser 6.0.3 (up-to-date) I saw the following warning appear
 below the URL bar:
 > "Your Firefox is out of date. Please download a fresh copy." On the
 right is a button that says "Get Firefox". Obviously we want to disable
 this warning.

 Solution --
 Go to about:config/extensions.bootstrappedAddon
 Reset the string Value to empty Value {}
 Restart Tor browser.
 The warning will not appear again.
