If you guys want to get a restart menu item or button built in on Firefox

Go here

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1454651
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1366009

Click on details > press vote to show you support it so that they will implement it.

Also if you want tell them why would you like it to be implemented like:

- Free up memory (RAM)
- Clear your browser cache if that option is set
- Remove cookies if that option is set
- Bugs (in Nightly) might require a restart to investigate properly (especially with the "tabs" API)
- Reload things that have changed on disk (configuration files)
- Start fresh without all the previous tabs as a way to clear the mind and focus.

Plus devs get really hacked off when a thousand trolls spam bugs. Although by the look of those bugs only two people want this "Feature"
What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

The idea is to have a button really close at hand. Shift + f2 +restart would be quicker than going to about:profiles IMO

It's not.

When I'm theming I sometimes do up to 30 restarts an hour and have used both methods. A pinned about:profiles tab with a massive restart button on it, is far quicker.
