 encountered in #18093 much easier to solve.

 Kathy and I reviewed and ran with all of the patches. Nice work! Comments

 > There are 6 patches here (in which I remove checkboxes one by one and
 then clean up the UI):

 * There is a typo in the commit message for
 38f3653b89ce3790d75b8652316f7381158d0af3 ("Bug Bug").

 the labels themselves, then we won't need this overlay any more.

 * In the tor-browser patches, should we use the same labels as we have in
 src/chrome/locale/en/torbutton.dtd? Or did you intentionally make them
 different to verify that the overlay was working?
 * Should we include the access keys in the overlay so they can be
