Comment (by mcs):

 I just attached a fixup patch `0001-fixup-Bug-4234-Use-the-Firefox-Update-
 Process-for-To.patch` that removes some code that hunts around in the
 Windows registry to decide whether to append `&mig64=1` to the update
 check URL. Arthur, please include this fixup when you create a new branch.

 For Firefox, the registry keys that are checked are set by Mozilla's
 installer. This means that they will never be set for Tor Browser, which
 also means it is a waste of time to look for them.
