Prior to this release I used (often) an add-on to restart Firefox. It's now incompatible.

Is there an easy click to restart in the FF 57 menu somewhere? If not, a compatible add-on?

And, yes, 57 is very fast!

Hi! You can simply close Firefox, and then restore previous session from the menu when you reopen.

Your suggestion seems to be incomplete. I am trying to restart Firefox 59 after security fixes have been applied by software update on Ubuntu 17.10. How do I restore the previous session? Firefox just starts up with the default home page. I am not given the option to restart with the previous open tabs.

You can try my extensions:

Time Restart: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/time-restart-reloaded/

Restart Browser: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/restart-browser1/

All wellcome!, please leave a comment and rated it if you like, thanks!!!

Note that the about:profiles page has button to start Firefox in regular mode and to start Firefox in Safe Mode. The developer toolbar also has a restart command.
