I didn't see "or completely replace the device" on that page.
From the article
This suggests a few ways to defeat this tracking method.
2, finding where the value is stored and preventing the browser from doing so, possibly by file/folder permissions.
Probably you know, but they refer to setting sync by itunes when they said "completely replace the device". And though your suggestion are probably right, 1. can't be applied to whitelisted site (of course you should whitelist only trustworthy sites though), and 2. currently there's no such handy addon except for disabling HSTS. Maybe Proxomitron or its alike (such as Privoxy) can do it but you need to make new filter. I'll wait some dev implement such anti-tracking capability into his addon.
I agree, after posting I read the article again and could not find it.

That's incorrect for Firefox on Windows.
How to clear HSTS Settings in Major Browsers
From Mozilla Bug 1114786:
The Double-Edged Sword of HSTS Persistence and Privacy
In Firefox, it's possible that a site has site-specific information stored, but doesn't appear in the about:permissions site list. If you want to be sure that all site-specific information for all websites is deleted, use History -> Clear Recent History and check 'Site Preferences'.
The simplest answer to these would be SandBoxie.
In my past experience on Chrome, actually when I deleted ANY of history data (either cookie or history or stored password or...), HSTS settings were deleted. It annoyed me because I wanted to save my HSTS settings for cert-pinning.
Browsing in privacy mode? Super Cookies can track you anyway
