Tor browser / HTTPS Everywhere should not connect to check.torproject.org on startup
In Tails 0.20, on every Iceweasel startup (including the 2nd one etc. during a given GNOME session), it connects to check.torproject.org (as seen in Vidalia network map).
We already have versioncheck_enabled=false. Setting versioncheck_url="about:blank" and test_url="about:blank" does not change the behaviour.
Reproduced with tor-browser-gnu-linux-x86_64-2.3.25-12-dev-en-US.tar.gz.

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/9693 This is the corresponding ticket on Tot's bugtracker.
I've not verified the current status of this either in Tails nor in the upstream code of the browser extension.
