Should we switch to "Tor Browser.app" from "TorBrowser.app" for macOS Tor Browser based on ESR60?

Description

We should think about whether we want to follow Mozilla's "suggestion" to switch from "TorBrowser.app" to "Tor Browser.app" and what that would entail from an update perspective etc.

The nightlies made this transition and I tried to fix all relevant "TorBrowser.app" occurrences in the build script at least (but I might have missed some there and elsewhere).

I see that the mac-sandbox contains a few references to TorBrowser.app, in projects/tor-browser/Bundle-Data/mac-sandbox/.

Replying to boklm:

I see that the mac-sandbox contains a few references to TorBrowser.app, in projects/tor-browser/Bundle-Data/mac-sandbox/.

The Mac sandbox has been non-functional since the first ESR52-based release (due to the addition of content sandboxing on macOS). We should remove it until we can devote engineering time to application sandboxing.

Regarding the general question of "Tor Browser.app" vs. "TorBrowser.app", I think we should add the space. This should not affect updates, since the .app can already be renamed by users to anything they like. The only thing that worries me is that Mozilla encountered some issues (but possibly unrelated) after they added a space to "Firefox Nightly".

Okay, then let's use "Tor Browser.app" and see what breaks.
