Comment (by Ilya_SpongeBob):

 Experts suggested in addition to add to "I:\Tor

 user_pref("app.update.enabled", false);

 and in file "..\Browser\defaults\pref\channel-prefs.js"
 pref("app.update.channel", "release");
 to replace by
 pref("app.update.channel", "no");

 As I can see app.update.enabled disables nag.
