 Replying to [comment:5 igt0]:
 > Can we create flag something like disable-system-alert? I think it is
 easier to uplift.

 We probably could. I went with sysrqb's patch for now as this seems
 easiest. If we want to take upstream concerns into account the best would
 be to open a Mozilla ticket with the patch that is working for us attached
 and ask for feedback in which direction we should go.

 If we think it is worthwhile to get it "right" on our side (first) let's
 think about that in a new bug.

 `tor-browser-60.1.0esr-8.0-1` (commit
 de2e1fbe5b024957ed469063bf38b8b274b4f4ba) has the fix.
