Reload Every Tab with One Button

Reload Every Tab Rather than reloading each tab, one by one, wouldn’t you like to reload all your Firefox tabs at once?  Okay, I realize this might not be a need for everybody, which makes it a perfect add-on for the browser. 

Reload All allows you reload all the tabs in the window at one go.   Need to reload most, but not every single tab?  It can handle that too.  It features a selection tool in case you want to reload a few tabs while leaving out the rest of them.

Master’s Guide to Reloading a Tab in Firefox

Reload a Tab, Any Tab!There are a number of different ways you can reload or refresh a window in Firefox.  For such a simple task, you would have never imagined that people have put so much work into making it easier.  The truth of the matter though is they have, and I want to share with you all the tab reloading secrets that I know of (and hopefully you can share your own favorites with me).

Here are the add-ons to help you with your page loading and re-loading.

Now, I know a lot of people will say, “How hard is it to hit the refresh button in your browser?” So with that in mind, here are a few additional ways to reload that web page in question.

Refresh That Tab! Reloading Keyboard Shortcuts

Windows/Linux: F5 or Ctrl + R = Reload a Page

Apple: F5 or Cmd + R = Reload a Page

Extra Tip: Another way to reload that tab you are on is to left-click on the tab, drag it into the browser window and the release.  That will give it a quick refresh too.

New Look for Firefox Add-ons Site

Along with Firefox 3 , it looks like Mozilla will be giving a refresh to the Add-ons web site as well. Out of a one to ten score, I would give it myself a 8.5.

I like it – but the middle seems unorganized some. Not sure if I am in love with it 100%. The far right column I think needs some color too.

For the single review pages, I do like they added the comment and review box a little higher so it is more noticeable. I don’t know, still rubs me as a little “vanilla” though. Vanilla isn’t a bad thing though. What do you think, good change or bad? Get the preview here!

SearchLoad Options

Want to tweak how Firefox’s default search options react to you in the browser? The SearchLoad Options extension should do the trick then.

Options include clearing the searchbar and resetting the search engine after each search. A time delay can be set in order to reuse search strings or search engines before changing the state of the searchbar.

Search results can be loaded into the active tab, a new tab, or a new background tab. An option allows new tabs to be created regardless of whether the current tab is blank. New tabs can also be created by using the Alt key.
