Comment (by cypherpunks):

 And we highly value Tor Browser's Anonymity-first development.
 But disabling(removing?) such API will break Javascript applications.

 Instead of removing localStorage/sessionStorage code, why not:
 a) Treat all "localStorage"(long term) as "sessionStorage"(short term).
 b) Enable "sessionStorage" by default, like Mozilla Firefox provides.
 c) When the user close the tab or click "New Identity", clear
