 test it.

 I have no computer without SSE2 support (and could not find how to emulate
 one), so I tested with SSE4A (which is not supported on my computer since
 it seems to be AMD only).

 If I set this url as `app.update.url.override`:
 Then the update is not started, with a message saying "You Tor Browser is
 out of date, but the latest version is not supported on your system".

 If I set this url as `app.update.url.override`:
 Then the updating process is starting.

 So the patch seems to be working as expected.
