Over at #31307, we were dealing with a broken GetTor because it made assumptions on the list length available at See this comment for more details.

While our emergency fix worked, boklm mentions on IRC that RecommendedTBBVersions is not a good way to learn about the current Tor Browser version:

 20:46  boklm│ RecommendedTBBVersions is not a good way to get the current Tor Browser version
 20:47  boklm│ is better
 20:48  boklm│ for example with: wget -q -O - | jq -r .version

Let's use this JSON file instead, and make GetTor more robust.

I have a fix in my fix/31313 branch. While I was at it, I also fixed a number of minor style and formatting issues.
