 Replying to [comment:1 igt0]:
 > We can not use the internal cache storage, though. It doesn't allow
 medium/big size files. (Normally fennec APK is around 30MB).

 Are the MARs ~30MB, too? I expect the APKs will be 30-40MB, but I wonder
 if the updates are smaller? I'll a little sad if we're forced to download
 a new APK for every update. But, if this is limitation imposed by the
 operating system, then we may need to use that workaround. As long as the
 user consents to downloading the update for TBA begins downloading the new
 APK, I don't believe this violates the private browsing mode requirements.
