    It seems "Reset" feature is going to be renamed to "Refresh" in Firefox 35.

    Yes, this is on the Need Changes list for "Template:resetsteps". I'll add this article to that list also, since its content (and title?) will also need updating, to include "Refresh" for Firefox 35.

    From the Template:resetsteps discussion thread, /en-US/kb/templateresetsteps/discuss/5549 [Fx 35?] "Reset" will become "Refresh"

    As far as updating this article goes, I made a new revision with the comment, Reset -> Refresh in FX35. DO NOT APPROVE until "Template:resetsteps" is updated for fx35!

    P.S. A revision to "Template:resetsteps" is pending review/approval. See /en-US/kb/templateresetsteps/history.

    There's a new "Refresh Firefox" button that you can add to kb articles using the code, [[Button:refresh]] , which will directly start a Firefox reset. Joni just added it to "Template:resetsteps" for fx35, as shown here: /kb/templateresetsteps#firefox:win7:fx35
