Comment (by sysrqb):

 Adding a note here, unfortunately, we can't add the spinning onion
 animation using the third-party lottie library. This is due to an
 incompatibility between our current dependencies and the library's
 dependencies. Tor Browser for Android currently requires the Android
 Support Library version 23.4.0 but Lottie requires (at a minimum) version
 25.0.1. I looked at all released versions of Lottie, and the oldest
 released version (v1.0.0) depends on Support Library 25.0.1 - and Lottie
 v1.0.0 was released over two years ago (so this would require serious
 consideration anyway).

 This isn't disqualifying us from using lottie in the future, possibly
 after we move to 68esr where Firefox for Android uses Android Support
 Library 26.1.0 (same as Lottie), but we simply can't use it at this
