Comment (by bugzilla):

 > on New Identity: it does not get deleted anymore.
 Can you confirm that? Because it does clear SiteSecurityServiceState.txt
 (by invoking Clear All History / Site Preferences somehow). And Firefox
 should do that then, otherwise there is something for uplifting.
 > NEWNYM issue seemed trivially to fix.
 Retained state after exiting can be treated as newnym violation, so could
 you also provide a patch for clearing/deleting
 SiteSecurityServiceState.txt (as a workaround)?
