 It seems that, even though torbutton is overlaying these checkbox labels
 with localized strings, XUL still wants to look up the original labels in
 tor-browser.git, which exist only in the en-US locale. So the solution
 seems to be to remove any references to localized strings in tor-
 browser.git. But we want to keep those references in our original #20244
 patches so that Mozilla can uplift and localize them. Therefore I'm
 proposing this separate follow-up patch that removes the references for
 Tor Browser only.
