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?

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

You can find a button to restart Firefox on the about:profiles page.

In Firefox 62 you no longer have the developer toolbar available with the restart command.

Thank you very much. The profile page is exactly what I was looking for. Is there any way to click into it from settings page or something? Currently I have to bookmark this page. I thought things like this should not be hidden from normal user.

The about:profiles page is still a bit "under construction" (some buttons don't work as expected in Windows) so I don't think Mozilla is ready to invite everyone to use it just yet.

If you use this restart button often then you can consider to open about:profiles as a pinned tab.

Set this pref to true to avoid opening the page assuming that you do not clear the history when you close Firefox.
