How can i get my Firefox restart option and button to work?

Posted

I recently input "Firefox restart" as an add-on which added this option to my Firefox drop-down file menu. However when I select it, nothing happens. Further, when I added restart to my add-ons, the restart button did not appear. However, I found it under Firefox "Customize" and dragged it to my tool bar. But it also doesn't work. How can I activate this tool?

What is the name of this add-on?

There are many such add-ons listed. Try another one. Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

If it is not working, disable it and try another. You can also check with it's support site.

Do you see any error messages in the Browser Console (Firefox/Tools > Web Developer) immediately after starting Firefox about this extension?

I tried the extension and see an error message about a missing entity after I click the Restart entry in the File menu.

restart.js:21:0 ( chrome://restartfirefox/content/restart.js )

NS_ERROR_FAILURE: Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIStringBundle.GetStringFromName]

restartFirefox.localizedText = quitBundle.GetStringFromName("restartTitle").replace(/&/,"").replace(/\(.\)/,"");	// &Restart (R)

You will have to look for another restart extension that still works.
