 In #5293 we removed the Battery API preference (`dom.battery.enabled`)
 from our custom prefs file, `000-tor-browser.js`. The rationale was that
 Mozilla made the preference accessible only by non-webcontent (see:
 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1313580) and we therefore
 don't need to set it ourselves anymore.

 We missed that Torbutton is dealing with the pref as well. We should
 remove that bit, too.
