Description

Background

As a user it is difficult to judge whether or not the browser is based on a Firefox version that's safe to use. For that it'd be helpful to have some way to find out what Firefox version the browser is based on.

What to change

Show Firefox Mobile's version number on Adblock Browser's About page.

After discussing with Judith, her recommendation was to add the following:
"Based on Firefox for Android X.X.X
Licensed under MPL v 2.0."

So with that, I have created the following proposal:

Functionally the only requirement from my side would be:
To make it self-sustaining, meaning that it will automatically pick up the version of Firefox without us having to update it on every release.

@tpregueiro

Are you planning to translate the new strings? I think it makes sense to keep consistency for the whole page.

I started to work on it. Was relatively easy to make it look like this (see attached screenshot). Just the translations will be a bit tricky.
