Comment (by mcs):

 The update notification on about:tor has been removed, but it would still
 be good to change the menu item label to track the update status. One
 approach would be to use the same strings as are shown in the app menu,
 * Check for Tor Browser Update
 * Download Tor Browser update (show this when we know an update is
 * Downloading Tor Browser update
 * Restart to update Tor Browser

 However, we should delay working on this until after #10760 is further
