 Replying to [comment:5 gk]:
 > It might even be confusing for users that still have an old Tor Browser
 that originally shipped with the search bar and just used the internal
 updater every time until 8.5 now.

 And this is my situation.

 > Still, I am not sure how we can know what the user's toolbar layout
 looks like and show the respective image. Or maybe, on second thought, the
 onboarding logic could actually figure that out and show the proper image
 out of, say, three scenarios we would take care of? But then again, that's
 quite some work to do. :)

 Yes, I don't claim I have the correct answer :) Maybe a different graphic
 showing the awesomebar and the new shield+onion icons instead of the
 current one showing the corner of the browser with "a textbox" and the
 three buttons? I'm imagining moving the focus of the graphic from the
 corner of the browser window to the awesomebar and onion+shield buttons. I
 don't know if this makes sense, though.
