Comment (by mcs):

 Kathy and I are working on implementation of the startup page portion of
 this ticket (that is, about:tor without new user or feature onboarding).
 We have a few questions:
 * Within this new design, how do we let users know that Tor is not working
 correctly? In the old about:tor, the text near the top of the page is
 changed to "Something Went Wrong! Tor is not working in this browser."
 (with a red background).
 * Should about:tor include a link to the Tor Browser manual? I think we
 talked about this during one of our meetings, but I cannot remember our
 * Will there be a way for users to navigate to
 https://check.torproject.org/ (the old "Test Tor Network Settings" link)?
 * Is it OK to completely remove everything related to update notifications
 from about:tor? I think we decided to use something based on Firefox 60's
 doorhanger-based update notifications, which means we no longer need
 anything related to updates inside the about:tor page.
