We show the 'Reload all Tabs' button when the cookie prefs are changed in about:preferences. This works fine but I would suggest a couple of things:

  1. we should not reload the current about:preferences tab.
  2. We should not show that button if there are not other tabs.

Those seem like good suggestions to me, but also not critical to have :)

Some other suggestions:

  • The button should be gray not blue, since the action is destructive (I once clicked that button assuming it was important just because it was blue, and it ended up reloading my 200+ tabs that I had open :( )

  • Maybe hide it if there's more than 100 tabs open ? It's pretty slow to reload 100+ tabs
