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
DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE
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with any recent versions of Firefox, and NONE of the documentation on the add-on page tells you that the add-on is no longer being updated, it deserves no more than 2 stars!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).
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.
Fix please for FF 44 as long as i love this addon
not working 44 please fix, thanks
