 Replying to [comment:4 gk]:
 > We are still getting HTTPS-E updates outside of our updater.

 When we ship a new version of HTTPS-E with a new release of Tor Browser,
 we arrange for it to be "force updated" (files replaced) so that the user
 is left with a known version of HTTPS-E which has been tested with TB.
 Interim updates are still retrieved from addons.mozilla.org using the
 extension update mechanism so users can get updates if desired. We use the
 same approach for NoScript.

 Do we want to do something different? If not, then this bug can be closed.
