    This patch adds a new 'securitylevel' component to Tor Browser intended
    to replace the torbutton 'Security Slider'.
    This component adds a new Security Level toolbar button which visually
    indicates the current global security level via icon (as defined by the
    extensions.torbutton.security_slider pref), a drop-down hanger with a
    short description of the current security level, and a new section in
    the about:preferences#privacy page where users can change their current
    security level. In addition, the hanger and the preferences page will
    show a visual warning when the user has modified prefs associated with
    the security level and provide a one-click 'Restore Defaults' button to
    get the user back on recommended settings.
    Strings used by this patch are pulled from the torbutton extension, but

    extension. With this patch applied, the usual work-flow of "./mach build
    && ./mach run" work as expected, even if the torbutton extension is
