[tor-project] User support report for April 2023

Hello everyone!

Here are updates from the user support team for last month (April,
2023). Most of our work has been around helping users in countries where
Tor is censored and some user support work in light of the new stable
Tor Browser release (Tor Browser 12.0.5).

With the release of Mullvad Browser[0], we also published some
documentation for our Support Portal[1].

Timeframe: 01 - 30 April 2023
