 Okay, here is our torbutton patch (add new strings):

 And here is our tor-browser patch (make all the new stuff work):

 Adding the attention-grabbing dot took some work but it seems worthwhile.
 We ended up using a variation of the third animation that Dunqan suggested
 in comment:4 (a simple pulsating "dot" that stops animating after 14
 seconds). Kathy and I think it looks good without being too annoying. Once
 we have a new nightly build everyone should take a look at it. You can
 force the 8.5 update tour to be displayed by opening the browser, using
 about:config to set `browser.onboarding.tourset-version` to `2` (instead
 of the new default value of `3`), and then restarting the browser.
