Tor Browser is checking this file to see if it is out of date:

The issue with the 7.5.4 release was that the RecommendedTBBVersions
file was updated to add the new version a few minutes after the release
was published (instead of before), so if you updated in that interval,
your browser would say that it is out of date after being updated.
The issue has been fixed by updating the RecommendedTBBVersions file.
Uninstall and reinstall of the browser was not needed.
