'Learn more' button in bridge settings directs user to about:blank

Issue description:

When one or more bridges gets listed in about:preferences#connection (for instance, after a user has selected to Select a Built-In Bridge), a text titled ‘Learn more’ is displayed beneath each bridge. It should apparently link to a webpage, but clicking on it merely opens about:blank in a new tab.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Launch Tor Browser
  2. Select hamburger menu → Settings → Connection (about:preferences#connection)
  3. Scroll down to Bridges
  4. Choose one of the methods to acquire one or more bridges, or enter one manually
  5. Observe the issue

Hi! The idea is to link the ‘Help’ and ‘Learn more’ buttons to appropriate sections of the Tor Browser User Manual. We are tracking these in ticket: [Connection Settings] Point Help buttons to the offline manual (#41023) · Issues · The Tor Project / Applications / Tor Browser · GitLab
