Description

See screenshots in attachment.

This is a big hack and it started falling apart. Fixing the CSS for real would be a pain and I think we should instead either:

  • Remove it. That's easy :)
  • Replace it with something that won't break:
    • A button or link in the body of /home
    • Something in sidebar.mdwn but that would only be displayed on /home through some CSS filter.
    • Some JavaScript to replace the content of the download button.

Fix the display of the "Tor check" button on /home (Will-fix: #15312)

Instead of displaying it on top of the "Install" button, we're not
displaying it instead of the "Install" button.

We could also try to implement a redirection of some sort to see how many people actually use this. Depending on the results we might consider getting rid of it completely.

I did this in af1a8b568a.

I should ask for stats when working on #14922.

It seems like actually a lot of people (at least 10%) use this button and we can't get rid of it like that.

Instead of fixing this bug reliably, I think it'll be much easier to come up with a new design for this feature.
