Permet de redémarrer rapidement Firefox. Très léger, parfait.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does exactly what it should do, no more and no less. For such add-ons, it is perfection.

Great simple Addon! Thank you
Request: Can you please add an icon for this so that it can be dragged and dropped on the window as per the user preference.
Right now it resides in menu bar for me (not sure why?). In modern Firefox, menu bar is hidden making the addon to use less!

The perfect restarting addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

...I've been using it since v1 back in 2010! 5* all the way!!!

It seems that some latest nightly 34.0a1 build must have broken something. The addon closes firefox instead of restarting it.

This in itself is not an issue, but I have set my session manager to save a session on each restart and now I keep loosing my browsing sessions each time I restart using RR.

PS: sorry for posting an issue here, but the "issues" page on github leads to a 404.

Love it, but would also like an option with no-addons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It would be awsome to also include another option to restart with no Add-ons, Extensions, or Themes. This would be great for debugging minor issues. I know there is an option using the Terminal, but would rather have a faster method. Also with the new FireFox can the restars be added under the firefox hamburger menu. Thanks

Perfect ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Extrmely useful, lightweight, localized and beautifuly integerated into new FF (29+) menu!

One can download the latest update (includes an improved icon) from https://github.com/erikvold/restartless-restart-ffext

Works as advertised... Rated 4 out of 5 stars

...but ever since the Australis update, the icon appears stretched when it is placed on the (horrible) menu. To the developer: please use a higher resolution image for the restart icon and I'll give this 5/5. Thank you!

Wonderful add-on. Donation in route:)

Great add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I love this add-on, as my Firefox with tens/hundreds of tabs simply needs to be restarted every couple of days, when it starts eating memory and slows down… Once the icon is updated to match Australis menu style, I will rate with full 5 stars and send a contribution! :-)

Good. But... Doesn't working properly with several profiles running simultaneously.
Reloads one - another opens.
But all was well - a long time ago.

Simply a must Rated 5 out of 5 stars

A tiny and very useful time saver

Please, improve the icon to be consistent with the new icons of Firefox v29 (Australis).

Great Time-saver Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I am writing an addon (not restartless) and I have been restarting FF repeatedly. Without this addon, it would have been very tedious.

One of thr most absolute best extensions ever developed for F/F Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Simply amazing! I love this!

I LOVE this addon! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The developer has done a great job with this add-on. I've been using it for a long time, and it's one of my absolute "must haves".

Recently, I "upgraded" to Firefox v29, and I have since been going through the tedious and painful process of trying to get the browser back into a usable state again.

Unfortunately, far too many of my customisations and favourite extensions have been broken by the radical changes that have been made in Austtalis.

I didn't have much hope of Restartless Restart working because it adds a menu item into the Firefox button menu (which no longer exists in Firefox v29). I do use Classic Theme Restorer which re-creates the appearance of the Firefox start menu, but it's obviously not the same as the real thing (seeing as the real menu has been completely removed by the Firefox developers). This means that most extensions that interact with the Firefox menu are now broken because the real menu is gone and the fake one created by Classic Theme Restorer is not recognised.

However. much to my surprise, Restartless Restart worked perfectly, even with the Classic Theme Restorer version of Firefox menu! It added itself in the correct position too; i.e. the well-chosen position ABOVE the Exit menu entry (rather than throwing it onto the end of the menu under the Exit button (as so many careless extension developers do).

I'm so delighted that this excellent extension continues to function exactly as it did before, despite some really dramatic changes to the browser that could have so easily broken it.
