This is the best CSS reloader addon, also compatible with WebExtensions.
I don't have to reload the whole page to see my CSS changes, just press F9 and that's it!
This is a tool that does one thing and does it well. I sometimes forget it isn't built-in and find myself hitting F9 in a coworker's PC.
I spent hours reloading pages and playing games until the last window to change a detail. With this, no more need. Thanks.
Doesn't seem to work at all, probably because my CSS is from an import link. This issue was reported on the github page in 2011 and has not been fixed. Last updated in 2011, unfortunately this is abandoned. Too bad, I have to sometimes refresh a page hundreds of times a day.
this addon made my life easier , its really great
if you add js files reload this will be the greatest add-one ever ! :)
Works, but annoyingly messes up the scroll position on use, so you have to scroll back down to the elements you're working on. I'm using FF 36.
Doesn't do anything when I press reload.
FF(29.0.1) does not cache reloaded files, so I need to keep reloading or clear cache which saves no time :-(
Also might benefit more from being accessible by a toolbar button...?!?
Worked with Google Web Toolkit (GWT) on Windows 8 as of April 2014
removed my pain
Encountering some caching problems of CSS files with Firefox due to WordPress style adjustements, this is exactly what I needed. Great.
It works perfectly fine on the server, but it doesn't work in the localhost.

Great extension. Working FF 19.0a1 32-bit on win, and it's only 3.5KB.
Among its drawbacks, non configurable keyboard shortcut, lack of locales, and it's non restartless. If you need a restartless alternative Fresh CSS would help you, also allows configurable shortcut and toolbar bar/addon bar button, but it's irrationally large.
Although you can manually modify the shortcut:
- Unzip extension (or open it with 7-zip)
- Edit ../chrome/content/cssreloader.xul (F4 in 7-zip)
- Modify " keycode " parameter with the value you want of https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/XUL_Tutorial/Keyboard_Shortcuts and save file.
- Zip the extension to an .xpi file (or update extension file in 7-zip)... and there you have it.
When styling hover drop down menus it helps to use the keyboard shortcut over the context menu.
However, in mac os x the F9 key is hijacked by the OS. Would be great if I could set this to use some other key combination.
Just what I wanted.
* Preference for Function key would be cool.
F9 in use :-(
Good addon, but I need to reload css in the iframe. Is this possible?
Make a quick css fix\tweak in firebug, update your css and instant update with F9 without waiting for the page to reload - this is such a time saver... Even works in ajax partial views in MVC3!
Great but we can't customize the shortcut... I need another shortcut instead of F9 or at least the possibility to add a button where I can just reload the files.
A must have for CSS development
Great addon I recommend to every web developer. Thanks for your time and efforts.
All OK in FF4!
Really missing CSS Reloader in FF4. It would be great if it were possible to customize the shortcut.
