 Maybe it happens because I use old Firefox installed from Debian APT.
 Firefox was called Iceweasel in Debian and then it was renamed to Firefox.
 Maybe Tor Browser undestands now that I use old system-wide Firefox and
 asks me to upgrade. If it is so, I consider this behavior wrong, because
 it is not Tor Browser's business what else software I use. Moreover when I
 press button "Get Firefox" it redirects me to page
 https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html which does not
 solve the problem of outdated system-wide Firefox in my Debian box...
