How do we restart the browser without closing every tab that we are open? It must have happened to us, when the browser we are using suddenly crashes or requires a restart because we just updated an existing add-on or plugin.

It’s a little troublesome.
Now for Firefox users, if you want to restart the browser without closing the tab that is currently open, it’s actually quite easy because Firefox provides these options directly from their browser.
