move "Check for Tor Browser Updates" from Torbutton to the Firefox menu

It already - kind of - exists for the Tor Browser, go to Menu > Help Menu > About Tor Browser and it will automatically check for the update (same as with Firefox).

using a "update" icon will make this more visible

It would be less visible in that case, people click on the onion icon (to change identity, change circuit, change security settings...) more than they do on the menu one.

Moreover, the Tor Browser already has some mechanisms to make the user aware of the need to update.

I understand your opinion, but what I'm saying is to make it possible to implement the changes said in #21183.

two alternativa to my original purpose is, to put "check for updates" directory in the about:tor, I'm right there isn't anything more visible than this.

other possibility is to put into the Firefox menu, and also put one indication to click there to make updates, like is made sometimes with Torbutton.
