Bug 1593365 Comment 3 Edit History

Note: The actual edited comment in the bug view page will always show the original commenter’s name and original timestamp.

I originally thought that everything would follow this schema:
<profile>/storage2/
UUID1/
UUID2/
UUID3/

However, asuth suggested that it might be good to have a special case for private browsing:
<profile>/storage2/
UUID1/
UUID2/
UUID3/

<profile>/storage2/pb/
UUID1/
UUID2/
UUID3/

This way, it would be easy to delete private browsing data without loading mappings from storage.sqlite. This can be especially useful when we implement a separate daemon for deleting private browsing data that would be launched after Firefox shutdown.
