Memory Restart Firefox Add-on 1.2

We have just released version 1.2 of our Firefox Add-on called Memory Restart. If you have the habit of checking Firefox memory usage in the task manager and restarting the browser if it consumes too much memory, this add-on is for you.

So what’s new?

* We have added a toolbar button for users not using the Firefox 4 add-on bar.
* We now display a dialog box confirming if the user really wants to restart. This prevents accidental restarts.
* Users can now customize the font color. Perfect for users using a dark colored theme or persona.
* We added the much requested auto restart feature. A word of warning about auto restart. Be careful not to set the memory threshold to a very low number or that might restart Firefox as soon as it opens. If this happens to you, please change the value of extensions.memoryrestart.memorylimit in prefs.js located in your profile folder.

The add-on can be downloaded from the Mozilla website.
