Rephrase Clear Private Data's "Authenticated Sessions"
From discussion with mconnor and Alex, this is the most jargon-y of the strings in that dialog, which is saying something. Even people who know what "caches" and "offline website data" are might still not be able to clearly articulate what this one means. Even just "Logged in sites" or "Active Logins" would be clearer, I think. Should be nearly a one-liner, once we have a plausibly better string. Should remember to update the support page linked to from the (?) icon too.

I have updated the relevant Litmus test cases to reflect this verbiage change.

Correct me, if I'm wrong, but if this item only applies to HTTP Auth logins, then it would be confusing to users, as it won't clear cookie-based logins.
(In reply to comment #7) > Correct me, if I'm wrong, but if this item only applies to HTTP Auth logins, > then it would be confusing to users, as it won't clear cookie-based logins. The difficulty of articulating that distinction (what about sessions authenticated by client certificates?) is why bug 463187 proposes to remove the checkbox, and clear them implicitly when cookies or history (or both) are cleared.
