Restart Firefox

By Jed Brown Free Editors' Rating
The Download Now link will prompt a local download of the Firefox extension. To install the extension directly, open the file using your Firefox browser.

Editors' Review Staff Feb 27, 2009

There are no surprises with this free Firefox extension; Restart Firefox does exactly what its name suggests.

To access the program, you first have to drag and drop the icon to your toolbar. You have just one option with this program, a check box that asks if you want to be prompted for a yes or no for the browser to restart. When we clicked on the toolbar icon, we received the prompt that made sure we wanted to restart the browser. We clicked OK and Firefox restarted.

It's plain, it's simple, and it works. If you're looking for a quick way to restart your Firefox browser, this is the tool for you.
