The CRSG-extension for default Firefox theme enables combined “Reload-Stop-Go”-buttons old GUI (on urlbar) like it was on Firefox 4-8. It does not create a new button! So if you miss the way you used to have a stop, go and reload button in the address bar – check this add-on out.
CSS Live Reloader is a Firefox extension to ease website CSS development. The extension reloads a page CSS whenever it changes on the server, resulting in something close to live editing of the stylesheet.
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.
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?
Tired of having the stop button taking up too much room in Firefox? Well, you could remove it from the interface all together or hide it, until you need it. The Smart Stop/Reload extension for Firefox will combine your stop and reload buttons into one.
This is to save you toolbar space, plain and simple. To avoid unintended reloads, the button is disabled for a split second when a page has finished loading.
For those of you who might have the Stylish extension installed, you have a few more options when it comes to combining the stop and reload buttons. Pick up the Stylish add-on then try these user styles out:
- Combine Stop/Reload Buttons
- Combined Stop, Refresh, and Throbber Buttons
- Smartly Show Stop and Reload Buttons
- Check Out More Stylish User Styles!
I like anything that helps me remove the browser clutter, so take your pick out of these suggestions – and if you have anymore, feel free to leave a comment and suggest!
Here is an easy fix to an easy problem. Do you need a better way to reload that Web page you are looking at? You could go all the way up to the reload button – or you could install the Reload Tab On Double-Click extension for Firefox. The choice is yours!
Are you keeping tabs on a Web site that you are expecting to change? The ReloadEvery Firefox extension gives you the ability to set a time interval for reloading a Web site. Now you can stalk the Web site of your choice automatically. Give the reload button a rest and try this extension out!
