Restart Firefox - A Great extension to use while developing Firefox Extensions

While developing Firefox extensions you need to restart Firefox endlessly. Use this cool extension to do it from the File menu or Toolbar.

Get Quick Restart.

Long Description

This simple extension adds a "Restart
Firefox" item to the "File" menu. You can also use the Ctrl+Alt+R
keyboard shortcut, or the included toolbar button.

To use the toolbar button: right click on toolbar -> Customize... then drag the Restart button to the toolbar.

Yes, very long...


  • A necessary tool for developers testing a bunch of pages that may draw infinite looping errors.

  • It
    would've received 5 stars from me if not for the ugly icon that totally
    messes up the file menu. No other options on the file menu has icons,
    so it doesn't look right, especially with such an ugly icon.

  • This
    is a great extension. FF has many options and settings, when
    configuring your setup, it is necessary to constantly restart the
    browser to test the changes. This extension performs the session
    restore and puts you right back where you were. Awesome!
