The restart button. Which pops up every time you install an extension. I don't think that there's any reason why every add needs a restart, why a disable requires a restart, and why a update of an add on requires a restart. Obviously, the add on needs to be designed for it, but for most addons that shouldn't be a big deal. Just run the startup or init code, and it's set to go. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.click on add-on page "add to firefox" 2.wait till it finishes downloading 3.restart button pops up on top Actual Results: The restart button will need to be pressed, thereby resulting in up to 30 seconds wasted (the more add-ons you have, the longer it takes). Expected Results: No restart should be available, and should just install the extension and start running it right away. I think that if an extension needs a restart, it should have an option to request a restart. But most extensions shouldn't need it.
A much requested feature. Please search before posting in the future.
