  • Not working with Waterfox 56.2.0.
  • : press Shift-F2 and then type restart into the console window before pressing Enter.
  • please update this addon to make it compatible with Firefox Quantum version 57.0 (WebExtension)

    Thank you !
  • :/
  • This extension no longer works with the most recent version of firefox.
  • This extension was very useful for me. So I created an extension (restartFox) that does the same and works with current versions of Firefox/Developer/Nightly.

  • Not working on firefox 48.0
  • There is no "file=>restart menu choice, ctrl+alt+r does not work in Firefox version 47.0 for Ubuntu canonical 1.0
  • Não funciona mais! Parou de funcionar quando atualizei meu Firefox para 45.1
  • Always loved this addon. In recent Firefox 46 there is no "restart" in menu and ctrl-alt-r not working.
  • Shift-F2 method does not provide me with a clean restart on 45.0.2.

    On Win 7 I have autohidden taskbar. However every time I use this to start FX, I have to manually open every single FX window to get my taskbar to hide normally.

    There is no "restart" choice under file menu for me.

    "Restart Button" add-on is said to no longer work, just like "Restartless Restart." So I'm just stuck now with nothing. Sad. It looks like it should be so easy to provide. When I install new add-ons they have a restart button on their install page. Why doesn't someone who's already written one of those, just provide the restart functionality and skip the add-on? It would be trivial.

    Maybe I could just do that over and over......hmmm, maybe enable and reenable some tiny add-on every time, effectively achieving a restart button?

    I am reduced to considering this absurd approach because no one has written a working restart button add-on. Would somebody please just write it?
  • Please, repair, thanks!
  • Doesn't work with the latest version
  • I've used it a lot and now it's unsupported. Thanks to the development team - that was an example of how to write simple, but very important things.

    All: now should hit SHIFT+F2 and then type "restart"+ENTER
  • Two years ago, when this add-on worked beautifully, I'd have given it 5 stars without a moment's thought!
    However, when an add-on no longer works with any recent versions of Firefox, and NONE of the documentation on the add-on page tells you that the add-on is no longer being updated, it deserves no more than 2 stars!
    Given that both the Add-on Home Page and Support Site are dead links, I'd normally give the add-on no more than 1 star, but this was a great, simple extension when it worked, so I simply can't give it such a low rating.
    It's about time that AMO start clearing out the add-ons that are no longer being actively developed and move them to an archive area. Those of us looking for CURRENT add-ons are finding it harder and harder to find them among all of the dead ones!
    Thanks for the memories Erik!
  • Yep, thanks Erik - it was nice while it lasted!

    Everyone: You can use the developer toolbar (Developer menu), or hit F2, and then type "restart" in the command bar now.
  • It's a pity, but it has stopped working from this version. Meanwhile the author fixes the add-on you can use Another Restart.
  • Thanks for this one. No matter how many times something [me] screwed up and I had to reinstall addons, this was always one of the first. Ce la vie, or as Kurt said, "so it goes".
  • Not working on FF 44.02 OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan. Developer's site at Github 404'd. Pity.
  • I loved this Addon who help me quickly restart Firefox.

    I used always shortcut ctrl/ + alt + r, but now it's not work anymore (in all my 6 ff-profiles).

    What's happend?
  • Would be perfect, but it doesn't work on Firefox 64. Don't know why, it just doesn't.

    Used it for years, recommend, alas, I want 64 bits.
  • This field is required? Ok. This Add-On is required! Good.
  • A must-have !

    For brave FF44 users, you can build plugin from oeekker version from Github : https://github.com/oeekker/restartless-restart-ffext
  • Wasn't this a FF built-in long ago?
    Firefox developers have a long history of removing useful parts of the program, trying to suit ... who? What ever happened to the element properties menu item? Oh.
