Description

As part of the release process, we are updating RecommendedTBBVersions to put the new versions in it.

However according to GeKo, at least in the alpha, RecommendedTBBVersions is not used anymore. If that is not used in the stable release too, then we should remove that step from the release process.

It is more accurate to say that after the patches for #28745 are merged, RecommendedTBBVersions will no longer be used. Looking at the existing code, removing the file should not break anything. It may cause current and old versions of Tor Browser to log info messages that look like:

Version check failed. Versions file is 404.

(which is probably okay).
