 Every 24 minutes we update the NoScript button according to the messages
 in my terminal looking like
 Torbutton INFO: Updated NoScript status for security settings
 This is done by calling `torbutton_update_noscript_button();`. The call is
 triggered by
 if (data.startsWith("noscript.")) {
 in our preference observer. It turns out there is a timer update happening
 every 24 minutes which gets saved in `noscript.subscription.lastCheck`.
 This is harmless for us as there are no subscription URLs available but
 nevertheless excessive.
