 Yes, I agree. On the other hand it's causing undefined behavior or bugs if
 you just overwrite older Tor Browsers with newer ones. The recommended way
 is to use the built-in auto-updater as it takes care of removing old and
 not longer needed files as well and adjusts all other things, too, that
 are needed for a successful Tor Browser launch.
