+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #698552 +++
mozilla-central and mozilla-aurora hold a private patch to NSS that implements an API currently needed by Gecko's SSL implementation. We can never ship a version of Firefox that *requires* private patches to NSS like this because it will break Linux vendor releases that use system NSS.
See the blocking bugs to see the work that needs to be done
We should get this done soon.
I tried to help by applying NSS patches in bug 542832.
Now waiting for Brian's feedback whether it looks good.
should this stay open?
Fx 11.0b1 was released depending on an unreleased nss version. Where's the tracking bug for 3.13.2 final release ?

> should this stay open?
Yes, because the landing was a release candidate (RC0), not a release.
However, we expect no other NSS changes.
If all went well with the landing of this NSS tag, I will create a final release (RTM) tag soon.
Unfortunately, I was informed about the necessity of a last minute change to NSPR.
mozilla is currently using NSPR 4.9 BETA.
Shipping mozilla releases with a NSPR or NSS beta releases is not allowed by policy.
I wasn't aware that changes of NSPR would be necessary. However, I was informed today there is. In bug 699567 people are working to agree on the final change.

I've pushed NSPR_4_9_BETA7 for final NSPR release testing.
(Bug must be kept open until NSS_3_13_2 and NSPR_4_9_RTM have been created.)
We have created the final release tags:
Brian, could you please update all 3 mozilla branches to these new tags?
Note that mozilla-central already has functional equivalent code snapshots, the only difference are in comments, version numbers and one enum symbol got renamed.
Because of this, after landing into mozilla-central, you don't need to wait, it's fine to immediately land into mozilla-aurora and mozilla-beta.
Yes, I will do the landings.
BTW, I guess the convention is for target milestone to stay at the version in which the code landed in mozilla-central; tracking-firefox11 and tracking-firefox12 flags (etc.) are used to track the backporting. (I agree it is confusing, but this is the process we are supposed to follow.)
This is the landing of NSS 3.13.2 RTM into mozilla-central.
One of the above try runs is for mozilla-aurora and the other is for mozilla-beta. They include all of the PSM and NSS patches approved for beta-11 and aurora-12. Once they complete successfully, I will land all those patches on the branches.
Brian, I see you just landed NSS 3.13.2, thanks for that.
However, you didn't land NSPR 4.9, see comment 8, this still needs to be done.
Would you be able to land that, too, or want me to help?
I missed the deletion of one of the private patches in security/patches and I didn't realize this bug was the one tracking the NSPR 4.9 RTM landing until Kai told me so. Thus:
*** Bug 728420 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Thank you Brian!
