It turns out that even if you disable healthreport service, it will still give you a prompt about the service unless you disable two other prefs.

Similarly, there are advertisements for Mozilla Sync after you install addons, store passwords, or make a bookmark. We should also disable these until we can audit Sync more thoroughly.

Has this ticket been fixed already? I found this in 000-tor-browser.js:

pref("browser.syncPromoViewsLeftMap", "{\"addons\":0, \"passwords\":0, \"bookmarks\":0}"); // Don't promote sync

and also:

pref("datareporting.healthreport.service.enabled", false); // Yes, all three of these must be set
pref("datareporting.healthreport.uploadEnabled", false);
pref("datareporting.policy.dataSubmissionEnabled", false);

But I am not sure if these pref settings disable everyhing (it sounds like they might).
