+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #769288 +++

After bug 769288, the entire SSL session cache will be cleared when we exit a private browsing window. Instead, we should only remove the entries for private browsing sessions.
Summary: Perform cleanup analogous to the relevant effects of LogoutAndTearDown when leaving private browsing mode → Entire SSL session cache is cleared when closing last private browsing window

Brian, can you please explain what needs to be done here?  Thanks!

I do not think that this blocks the enabling of per-window private browsing in Firefox. I couldn't find another bug to track follow-ups that result from the private browsing work; if there is such a bug, then we can change the dependencies.

Fixing bug 739465 using Wan-Teh's second suggestion should fix this bug.

Er, rather, it would allow us to easily write a patch to fix this bug. Note that some race conditions would have to be dealt with, as described in bug 769288 comment 44.

Not a blocker for per-window private browsing.
No longer blocks: 463027
This is predicated on having the ability to remove specific entries from the cache, rather than all of them. I'm not aware of a way to do this in NSS at the moment.
