How do I restart firefox with the same tabs and windows?

It isn't in the File or Tools menu. I get nothing when searching help. Yet FF knows how to do it, say when updating extensions.

I know I can do it by saving my session, exiting, restarting and restoring the session But is there a single command to do all that?

Thanks. --David

I want to remove ALL the passwords in firefox lockwise. No answers here. This is the worse software design I have ever seen from firefox. The old versions allowed you to delete ALL passwords with one simple click, it looks like the only way I can get passwords removed in firefox lockwise is do so individually. Who was the mental defect that designed firefox lockwise without providing a ONE CLICK way to remove all passwords?

I want something similar to “chrome://restart”, without setting “open previous tabs when started” because I restart not very often (typically to recover from some issues). I have read several previous questions about restarting Firefox, such as this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952456 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1089103 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184755 . The GCLI was the perfect solution, but it is retiring in Firefox 62. Is there an alternative solution?

IE has an option of opening an FTP site as a window in file explorer. Then you can drag and drop multiple files to the computer easily. Right now there is no easy way to get multiple files from an FTP site using firefox that I can find. Is it possible? If not, this would be a nice feature to add to a future version.

Greetings! addresses like file://server/filename (local files) get opened in IE and Chrome without problem, even Edge does (but very slow). Why Firefox (tested versions 39.0, 41.0.2 änd 42.0) seem to totally ignore these addresses? It doesn't even display an error, just don't do anything. Is there a simple setting to fix that? We have a local html portal (not on web server) with links to local files, and Firefox seems to be the only user's beloved browser that makes problems with this. Hope there is an easy enough way to fix this. Thanks in advance.
