A super basic add-on that adds a ‘refresh frame’ button to the right-click context menu. Great addition for developers working on systems that utilize HTML frames.

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.
The most recent Firefox buzz around the Web seems to be based around the idea of giving the Firefox logo itself a ‘bit of a makeover. Alex Faaborg has been stirring the debate with several interesting ideas.
From what I have seen, so far I like the old icon a ‘bit better than what I have seen thus far. I am more of a fan of the subtle design rather than that, “ahh look, it is on fire and it is all wacky looking” look and feel. So why fix something that is not broken? Alex explains:
In a marketplace that is focused on products that are newer, faster, lighter and shinier, design work is inherently perishable. Part of this is larger trends and fashion (for a period of time cars had fins), and part of this is simply ongoing visual change as an indication of overall progress.
So far, here are the draft renderings we have to check out:
The first two icons are being rendered by Anthony Piraino at the Iconfactory. The design is based on a conceptual sketch by Jon Hicks. The third is being rendered by Stephen Horlander. If you want to keep up with the latest, be sure to keep an eye on Alex Faaborg’s blog as they are promising more concept art every 24 hours or so.
So, do you think we need a Firefox logo refresh, or are you happy with how it is right now?
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.
- ReloadEvery – reloads a tab ever “x” amount of minutes or seconds.
- Reload Tab On Double-Click – reloads a tab when you double-click it.
- Reload Plus – gives you tons of other reloading keyboard shortcuts.
- Check4Change – periodically check a web page for updates.
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.
Reloading Keyboard Shortcuts
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.
How do you reload your browser window?
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!
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.
