Hi there,

I'd like to hear about your gut feeling on
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1205598 so that we can
adjust the strategy we'll choose at Tails to deal with it:

 * Any clue what are the chances that Mozilla fixes it say, within 3-6
   months? I see that the Private Browsing component has 175 open
   bugs, most of them unassigned, so I'm personally not very hopeful.

 * If it's hopeless to just wait for Mozilla, is it something you
   think the TBB dev team will want _and_ be able to work on any time
   soon, as a somewhat important violation of the TBB design goals?
   If yes, what would be a realistic ETA?

Note that as far as Tails is concerned, honoring $TMPDIR would be good
enough, even if it wouldn't fix the real PB bug.

Perhaps just mentioning it here will somehow let our dear anonym come
up with a patch, but this one seems quite harder, so let's not count
on it :)

[Internal tracking: this is about Tails bug #10141]
