NSS 3.69.1 is a dot release based on the content of Firefox 92. Due to some issues with
the process for bringing NSS releases to Firefox, commits for 1722613 and 1720226 were absent
from the Firefox 92 branch which was associated to NSS 3.69. Due to time constraints a decision
was made to align the content of 3.69.1 with the Fx92 branch by backing out these changes instead
of restoring these commits.
Note that Bug 1720226 was also known to introduce a performance regression that has been fixed
in the main/default branch of NSS (Bug 1726022). Since the change has been backed out in this
release, 3.69.1 does not suffer from that performance regression.
The fix is however not in 3.69 (which is affected) but will be in the 3.70 branch, which benefits from
both the change and the fix for the regression.
The NSS 3.70 release is on schedule and will happen on September 2nd.
