    • Reset Firefox - this first implementation is a button in about:support. It automatically creates a new profile and migrates over your bookmarks, history, passwords and form data.
      • Rename Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings to "Reset Firefox – easily fix most Firefox problems" - new version of the article documents this feature. Note: this article was originally created as temporary solution while this feature was being worked on.
      • Create a template or templates that mention that this feature can be used instead of troubleshooting steps <snip>
