Comment (by antonela):

 Thanks, Katty and Mark! Firefox approach seems just good for what we need
 to solve.

 One thing we could discuss is the little noticeable icon we have as an
 "update remainder." We might make it more noticeable. As you mentioned in
 #26049 reducing a delay to prompt a message is a good idea. I would like
 to explore a new icon or some red flag to make it more visible.

 Another thing I would like to explore is if we can show in some way a
 successful update.  `About:tor` seems to be the first place to do it at
 first glance. But you mentioned that a lot of people doesn't have
 `about:tor` as a homepage. Should we do more research about it? How % of
 users have a custom home page? And how might the prompt works once the
 user restart?

 That said, I'm in favor to keep this looking same as FF60 as much as we
 can. For sure, there is a lot of benefits to approaching this kind of
 tasks in this way for us.
