#8382 closed defect (fixed)

IndexedDB and Offline Cache can get enabled, but New Identity doesn't clear them

In #3100, I made IndexedDB and the Offline Cache tied to the TBB disk pref. If you allow disk access, they're on. However, New Identity doesn't currently clear them.

The user is at least prompted before these caches are used, even if they are enabled, but we still should probably clear them on New Identity...

I think the answer here is to simply disable these two features for now. The offline cache appears not to obey our 3rd party cache isolation (#8421), and IndexedDB appears to have no easy way to clear the entire thing. Also nobody uses it.

Pushed this to origin/master.
