Comment (by mikeperry):

 Aha, it looks as though IndexedDB is also disabled in private browsing
 modes: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=781982. Interestingly,
 it's disabled in a different way than flipping that pref, which seems good
 enough for us I guess?

 Unfortunately, if you enable disk records/disable private browsing, New
 Identity does not clear IndexedDB.
