Mozilla has introduced the Reset button for Firefox with version 13 which restores the browser to the factory default state. When you visit about:support or Troubleshooting information page, Firefox shows a ‘Reset Firefox’ button in the top right corner with a brief description of what you achieve with that, this has been changed to ‘Give Firefox a tune up Refresh Firefox‘, you can see this in latest Firefox 36 nightly (check the screenshot below).
Reset Firefox is now Refresh Firefox
When you click on ‘Refresh Nightly’, a Refresh Firefox dialog appears and says
“Start fresh to fix problems and restore performance. This will: Remove your add-ons and customizations. Restore your browser settings to their defaults. ”
- Reset Prompt to appear before download or after re-install of the same Firefox version
