 The current Tor Browser Android translation.git branch seems to contain
 all Fennec strings from  https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-
 US/android_strings.dtd, which is unnecessary because these strings are
 already continuously updated and translated by Mozilla.

 So we should remove

 Probably most Tor Browser strings are shared between Desktop and Android.
 So we should not duplicate these either. We could introduce a .dtd for
 TBA-only strings. Or we could share .dtd and .properties files between
 Desktop and Android. Any strings only needed for Desktop can be ignored by
 Android and vice versa.
