Comment (by boklm):

 I also see that `LastTorBrowserVersion=8.0a10` is correctly getting added
 to the file

 While looking at this I noticed that the build id is included in the
 `LastVersion` line:

 Currently we generate a build id based on the firefox version number
 (using the script `projects/firefox/get-moz-build-date`), so it does not
 change when we don't change the firefox version. An other option could be
 to generate it based on the Tor Browser version number, so that it is
 changing even when the firefox version is not.
