Description

In the "Tor Browser Downloads / Stable Tor Browser" section of the page at URL https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en#downloads, the word "modified" in the phrase "Also, note that the Firefox ESR in our bundles is modified from the default Firefox ESR" is linked to https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbrowser.git/tree/HEAD:/build-scripts/config/ that seems to be a blank page.

I think it maybe needs to point to https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-browser.git/tree/?h=tor-browser-31.3.0esr-4.0-1 or something like this.

Hrm, I'm not sure what the actually right thing to point people to is. Removing the link for now and adding some CC

Pointing to https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-browser.git is a good alternative: it points to all the changes we made while there is almost no need to take care of different Tor Browser versions as there is no version component in that link. I am fine as well with pointing to the branch used by the latest Tor Browser version, like cypherpunks mentioned above, if there is an easy way doing that (not sure about it).

It seems pointing to ​https://gitweb.torproject.org/tor-browser.git is the only solution, otherwise it will be necessary to change the link every new Tor Browser version.
