Revise onboarding to take new Firefox experience into account

Description

Firefox 68 ESR does not come with the onboarding extension anymore which Mozilla and we used to provide an onboarding experience for our browser based on Firefox 60 ESR. We hacked around that for Tor Browser 9 by reverting a bunch of patches and adjusting the code we had (see: #28822) but that strategy won't work forever.

Instead we should look into how the new onboarding in Firefox works and develop our own on top of that. Or: We make a conscious decision to provide onboarding independent of Firefox's one because we don't like the new one Mozilla ships.

Thanks for the heads up, gk. Do you have any documentation link I could explore regarding any Firefox onboarding in ESR68? I failed when I tried to find it.

I have not looked closely to be honest. It's part of the activity stream now, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1457565 being the meta bug. Clicking a bit around I found

https://trello.com/c/gRkk9mI2/188-i-want-a-simple-onboarding-tour-to-run-at-the-first-run-of-the-first-new-tab-page

but we should probably dig up more here.
