 > Any reason why the `minVersion` for Fennec is 45 and not 52? (I am fine
 with leaving the patch you have given that we are not really enforcing 52
 for desktop either, just curious)

 No, I don't remember why I chose that. Good question.

 > commit 2e1e760a8393de281318e97ef44b2e89ba67879c
 > "Gecko now requires "0o"-prefixed octal literals" <- Are you sure about
 that? Yes, the warning shows up in the browser console but the bug you are
 citing is already fixed in Firefox 48, yet Tor Browser 7 does not show the
 warning. Fixing the octals is good, though. I hunted a bit but finding the
 actual bug behind this change seems a bit tricky. I think we could just
 say "Fix deprecated octal literals" in the commit message and move on.

 The runtime now throws a syntax error:

 JavaScript error:
 /tor-launcher at torproject.org.xpi!/components/tl-process.js, line 1003:
 SyntaxError: "0"-prefixed octal
  literals and octal escape sequences are deprecated; for octal literals
 use the "0o" prefix instead

 But, I see 52ESR should throw the same error at runtime, so I'm not sure
 why TorLauncher and TorButton currently work.

 > You are using "Bug XXXXXXX" and "bug XXXXXXX" for referencing Mozilla
 bugs within a sentence. I think you should stick to one format and the
 latter is the better one.

 Agreed, I'll change this.

 I did this so the line length is less than 80 chars. If you prefer adding
 the space then we can move the format string onto the next line.

 > You want to have pairwise "'" but are forgetting sometimes the closing

 I'll review this and confirm there are matching quotes.

 > The indentation of the new code block is off by one.

 I'll change this.
