You can find a button to restart Firefox on the about:profiles page.

Do you mean this one from https://gist.github.com/Sporif/ad6e917d87787491538bac80d3c8918c#gistcomment-2767482 :

That's a bookmark to the internal page about:profiles with the name changed. One way to add it to the drop-down menu is to:

  1. open the page: type or paste about:profiles in the address bar and press Enter to load it
  2. drag the document icon from the left side of the address bar to the menu button and hover briefly until Firefox opens the menu, then drop it where it would be convenient

If you need the optional Bookmarks Menu toolbar button (), you can add using the Customize panel: Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars.

Hi jscher2000,

No. If you scroll up to the top of the page, you'll see the custom button "RestartFirefoxButton_Movable.uc.js"

Is there a way to create a shortcut for about:profiles. I tried, but it launches Internet Explorer?? I've already got the bookmark.

I tried pinning about:profiles, but the snag is, when the browser restarts, and I use your "Switch to Previous Active Tab", it doesn't return me to the previous tab. But if I unpin about:profiles, it takes me to that previous tab.

Are you already using a userChrome.js script setup? It's not officially supported. I have more info here: https://www.userchrome.org/what-is-userchrome-js.html

If you mean a desktop shortcut, you can add it by using the long way:

  • right-click on the desktop > New > Shortcut
  • for 64-bit Firefox, paste into the location box (include the ' marks):

    "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" "about:profiles"
  • click the Next button
  • name it anything you like then click the Finish button

Hmm, does the add-on ignore pinned tabs? I don't use pinned tabs, so I can't remember. Will need to investigate.

I use CustomCSSforFx https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/issues/417, but userchrome.ccs is not altered for use with "RestartFirefoxButton_Movable.uc.js".

"RestartFirefoxButton_Movable.uc.js", and a custom userchrome.js (a method for injecting scripts) are added to the Chrome folder, and three other files are moved to the Firefox installation folder, explained here:

https://github.com/alice0775/userChrome.js/tree/master/72 https://github.com/alice0775/userChrome.js/tree/master/72/install_folder

Thanks

I never meant to imply that "Switch to Previous Active Tab" was at fault. I have six pinned tabs, and when I tried to use "Switch to Previous Active Tab" on about:profiles, it would take me to the first/leftmost pinned tab.

I just removed all the other pinned tabs, and now when I tried to use "Switch to Previous Active Tab" on about:profiles, there is no response. Goes nowhere.
