Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Find a way to crash Firefox. 2. Enter about:cache in the location bar 3. Actual Results: Cache should not be cleared. Expected Results: Cache is cleared. It might be calling deleting whatever is checked in Clear Private Data in the options. I only have the Cache option checked.
Just tested it with some other options checked and it seems to only clear the disk cache.
That's normal behavior. The reason is that we can't be sure if the cache isn't corrupt in itself (there used to be problems in that area), so the application takes the safe bet, and deleted the cache.
