Okay, that's due to `noscript.subscription.lastCheck` changing and we are updating the icon when any NoScript related preference changes. We should fix that I guess. Oh, and there is no real subscription check in the background as there are no subscription URLs in Tor Browser available. Nevertheless, the timer gets updated every 24 minutes. I'll file a ticket for that later, thanks.
