User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0
Build ID: 20150420134330

Steps to reproduce:

"Restart by Schuzak"

Actual results:

It adds a Restart button next to Shutdown in the menu, functions perfectly in harmony with Firefox and doesn't feel out of place in the least bit, so I felt it's worthy consideration as a built-in feature.

Expected results:

I don't know the logistics of implementing an extension into the main branch of Firefox, but the alternative of making your own button that functions similarly exists. Since it's a rather small addition, I'd guess it's not too difficult (take that with a grain of salt, I know no more than basic programming in any language).

The extension serves as a pretty good template, which is why I linked to it. I could just keep using it, but because of the stated reasons above I feel the implementation of such a feature should at least be considered. I recognize a need to prioritize, and that there are likely to be 100 other small features out there far more useful than this, but I hope you do consider it at least.
