Hide or otherwise disable "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..."

Tor Browser still has the vanilla Firefox Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item under the Help menu. While this functionality is extremly useful for debugging vanilla Firefox Add-on/Extension issues, this should probably be hidden/disabled for Tor Browser since it is a giant "Make Tor Browser Not Work" button.

I suspect miniscule fraction of the userbase will complain if it goes missing, so perhaps it should only be hidden via a pref that controls this behavior.

Cf. #16641 (Tor Browser will offer to disable your extensions if you haven't started it in a long time). comment:3:ticket:16441 says we should set browser.disableResetPrompt=true (may not help with the menu item).
