shift-F2 and restart buggy Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Shift-F2 method does not provide me with a clean restart on 45.0.2. One aspect that happens every time for me is on Win 7 my autohidden taskbar persists unless I open every FX window after such restart.
"Restart Button" add-on is said to no longer work, just like "Restartless Restart."
There is no "restart" choice under file menu for me.
So I'm just stuck now with nothing. Sad. It looks like it should be so easy to provide. New add-ons have the button on the add-on page. I wish I could just do that over and over... ...Hmmm, maybe enable and reenable some tiny add-on every time? (Someone, PLEASE shut me up from such a ludicrous procedure by just writing it!)

Please, repair, thanks!
Not working with Firefox 45 Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Doesn't work with the latest version
That was a great add-on! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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
Great old add-on Rated 2 out of 5 stars
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with any recent versions of Firefox, and NONE of the documentation on the add-on page tells you that the add-on is no longer being updated, it deserves no more than 2 stars!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!
Sad to see it go Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Yep, thanks Erik - it was nice while it lasted!
Everyone: You can use the developer toolbar (Developer menu), or hit <SHIFT> F2, and then type "restart" in the command bar now.
I doesn't work on Firefox 44 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It's a pity, but it has stopped working from this version. Meanwhile the author fixes the add-on you can use Restart My Fox.
R.I.P. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
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".
Probably the end of it Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Not working on FF 44.02 OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan. Developer's site at Github 404'd. Pity.

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.

Not working in 44.0 Why? Rated 2 out of 5 stars
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.

No longer works in Firefox Version 44! Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I've been a long time user of this excellent addon ever since I can remember and today with update to Firefox 44, the tool bar button and File Menu Restart are gone and cannot use. Had to uninstall and hope it can be fixed soon! This is an essential add-on in my opinion and has always worked great until now!
