Really useful and Should be built in to FF.
Should be built in.
We were wondering this would be updated and we are glad you updated it. We also used Menu Editor with this to make it a right mouse click.
This is one of the add-ons that should be built in!!
I highly recommend it :)
Simple and perfect. TY!
One simple job, but what a useful job for extension developers !
It works. Simple but good.
It works as expected... good for when firefox is sluggish and needs to be restarted.
Note that the toolbar button isn't automatically added to the toolbar, it just becomes available as a button you can add to the toolbar if you want.
TrueFalcon's suggestion to just use alt-F4 is wrong; that doesn't close all Firefox windows, only one window (and of course it's more convenient to not have to manually start Firefox after it's closed).
That ugly messed up toolbar icon has been driving me mad for months.
Finny08 has fixed this problem and there is now just a single icon in the 'Customize Toolbar' dialog.
I have a lot of tabs open. I was using QuickRestart for a few weeks, but it struggled (and often failed) to restart Firefox. Perhaps it works for most people, but not for my particular usage pattern.
I have started using the present add-on Restart Firefox 0.3 and it has worked every time.
Wonderful!! Just what I was looking for :) It seems to restart MUCH faster than hitting the 'X' and reopening.
I'm guessing it will also reduce the likelihood of me getting the "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must..." message.
I like this in the File Menu, but the toolbar button needs to look a little less friendly than what it looks like now. Maybe a Spinning Firefox (think Sonic the Hedgehog)...something that wouldn't accidentally be mistakenly hit by a guest on my computer thinking it's the reload button, which is almost exactly what it looks like. Maybe a dropdown menu asking for a close second click would work. I'm just concerned that I might accidentally restart while in the middle of something important. I like my computer to be idiot/me-proof ;)
There's also a keyboard shortcut I just found. I won't be disrespectful to the add-on developer and tell you what it is here though. But I do want you all to know it's an option.
Thanks for another great addition to the greatest browser in the world =D
-Your Addon should have translation into another languages. (French by example)
-Quick restart icon into statusbar
It's a really nice idea when I develope Addons to try it and I should restart a hundred time by day.
Very nice. Remembers the tabs as well.
Two suggestions would be have a shortcut such as ctrl-shift-r or whatever, and maybe a little restart icon that is available in 'Customize'
hey man wouldn't be great if you have a status bar button or so !!
thnxx a bunch
i use firefox 3.0.6
it says "Firefox could not install the file at
because: Unexpected installation error
Review the Error Console log for more details.
Why bother with this unnecessary add-on inflicting processor overhead. I just press alt-F4 and then Win-F (custom hotkey via AutoHotKey) and Ff is restarted just as quickly.
thanks for updating this addon! just what i needed. dont need shortkey like quickstart provided.
Works perfectly. I leave Firefox open all day at work and often by the end of the day it's so slow as to be unusable. A quick restart and good as new.
Works as expected. Thanks !
