[tor-talk] TBB update experience

Hi all,

the auto-update experience of the tor browser bundle is
a bit strange. I'm somewhat used to the 'please update
now' popup (and like it very much). But if/when I start
TBB while an update is due I get the 'please click here
to update' welcome page - which leads not to an update
but to downloading (and installing) a completely new bundle.

If I *don't* follow that hint then after some time the
'please update now' popup will appear, but it took me
some time to be trained to wait for that. It would be
very helpful when one could start the update process
manually (and the welcome page would hint how to do

On Win8.1 I even got a short notification on the task
bar about a pending update immediately after starting
TBB, but I wasn't fast enough to click there, and
unable to find a way to manually trigger the update

(I have three TBB installations so I get a
bit of occasions to experience the updates.)
