About this Add-on
After installing Panic Button, the Panic Button toolbar button will be automatically added to the browser toolbar, if it is not there already.
• Make Panic Button work for you by choosing one of the following actions: Hide All Windows (the fastest option; a Restore Session toolbar appears after all Firefox app windows close so that you can bring back the browser windows after danger has passed), Minimize All Windows (slowest option – but all windows can be restored), Quit (close all windows and quit Firefox), or Hide and Replace (hides all browser windows and replaces them with a browser window displaying a web page at a specific URL; click on the Panic Button again to restore the browser session).
• Press F9 to invoke the Panic Button action; the shortcut key can be customized, if desired.
• Customizable toolbar button caption and icon. There are 20 toolbar button images to choose from. An image file on your computer can also be used; oversized images will be automatically resized.
• Instantly customize the Panic Button toolbar button icon by right-clicking on the button and then selecting the desired icon from the Select An Icon panel. (Not available on Mac OS X)
• You can set a password to restore the browsing session, when the Panic Button action is set to Hide All Windows or Hide and Replace.
• Works with Private Browsing mode
Supported languages: English (United States), Chinese (Simplified), Dutch, Estonian, French.
