How to restore Add-on bar back in Firefox

If you are a Firefox user and have upgraded to Firefox 29 recently, you may have noticed that the Add-on bar no longer exists anywhere which was placed at the bottom of the browser in earlier versions of the Firefox. This Add-on bar no longer exists after Mozilla implemented the new UI in the browser. Mozilla has removed the Add-on bar in latest version and now places an Add-on's button in the main toolbar.

But many users won't like it there as it may result in over-crowding the navigation bar and hence, want the it back at same place at bottom of the browser.

Any features which were before you upgraded to latest version in the add-on bar, will be restored too. But if you want to add anything else or customise it, then you can do that by clicking the customize button.

Add a Restart button to Firefox

There are times when you want to restart Firefox, just for freeing some memory or for testing something new, but you are afraid that you will lose all the opened tabs in it. Normally you can use the session-manager in Firefox or use an addon like Tab Mix Plus to save the browsing session and then restore it from the settings. But is there a quick way to restart Firefox without the hassle of saving and restoring it? Say hello to Restartless Restart.
