Comment (by Ilya_SpongeBob):

 I've read release announcement "Tor Browser 5.0 is released"
 https://blog.torproject.org/category/tags/tbb?page=3 . According it I
 installed clean browser from box, started,  opened about:config page and
 changed app.update.auto = false. But update was downloaded and
 successfully applied next start. Useless advice.
