 TBB updater shouldn't upgrade current TBB 7.x users.
 Instead, show a dialogue:

 A new TBB is now available!
 Please download new TBB from https://tpo

 Everyone should start using fresh browser - ESR52 and 60 is completely

 If you use updater to do in-place upgrade, many people will carry over old
 settings and some might cause a persistent problem.
