When using the extension auto-installer to reload addons during development the browser toolbox does not reflect those updates.
I.e. it still shows the versions from the time it was loaded.

Restarting the toolbox does show the new scripts, but that can be can be quite cumbersome.

Correction, I have to restart the browser and then the toolbox for the source views to be refreshed.
I strongly suspect this to be a duplicate of 893696. Leaving this open until I can confirm.
Also grouping this under the meta bug for add-on debugging.
