Comment (by mikeperry):

 Holy crap. It seems like there really is no easy way to clear indexedDB
 data in Firefox at all. Not through Clear Private Data, or anything else.
 In fact, the only code I could find that deals with IndexedDB supercookies
 at all is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/mozcleaner/, and
 that actually removes the sqllite files and other info right off the
 filesystem. It also says that this is unstable (probably because the
 browser caches open file handles to the sqlite stores, etc).
