Description

So I was looking at the diff for firefox-72beta1, as you do.

Needs nss-3.48.

AFAICS this has not been released yet, but the release notes are at https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Projects/NSS/NSS_3.48_release_notes

The NSS team has released Network Security Services (NSS) 3.48 on XX December 2019, which is a minor release.

There is also a link for the source tarball there, which 404s at the moment.

Notable Changes in NSS 3.48

TLS 1.3 is the default maximum TLS version. See Bug 1573118 for details.

TLS extended master secret is enabled by default, where possible. See Bug 1575411 for details.

The master password PBE now uses 10,000 iterations by default when using the default sql (key4.db) storage. Because using an iteration count higher than 1 with the legacy dbm (key3.db) storage creates files that are incompatible with previous versions of NSS, applications that wish to enable it for key3.db are required to set environment variable NSS_ALLOW_LEGACY_DBM_ITERATION_COUNT=1. Applications may set environment variable NSS_MIN_MP_PBE_ITERATION_COUNT to request a higher iteration count than the library's default, or NSS_MAX_MP_PBE_ITERATION_COUNT to request a lower iteration count for test environments. See Bug 1562671 for details.
