Thanks. Unfortunately, if you were upgrading from a non-restartless version, it can't be helped: a restart is still necessary to *remove* that version, even if it's being replaced by a restartless version. However, it should be truly restartless at this point.
If you weren't upgrading from such a version, however, I'd like to hear more about it. In which case, please submit a support request (find the links next to the description on https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/tools-options-for-linux/ ).
Many moons ago, a man named jwz wrote the Unix version of Netscape Navigator. For unknown reasons, he, in his infinite wisdom, decided that Preferences should go under Edit.
Despite almost two decades, a corporate buyout, an open sourcing, 15 major versions, the triumph of Linux over Unix, and most importantly, thousands of add-ons, all of which place their configuration settings under the Tools menu...
the Preferences menu item has stayed in the place jwz prepared for it.
I'd be glad to. But I need to know whether the GUI is the same as the Linux version. I think it probably is, in which case I would only need to make a slight change to the install manifest, but it would be nice if someone who's actually using FreeBSD can help. I have no way of contacting you other than by replying here, which is exactly why you should not use reviews to make support requests. If you see this, please contact me through the email link so we can actually have a conversation. Thanks.
