After getting a lot of complaints about Firefox not working properly, Mozilla has come up with a simple solution. Mozilla has developed a new feature into the Firefox called ‘Reset Firefox’. It gives you the ability to reset the browser settings retaining your personal data. The new feature is available in Firefox beta for Windows, Mac and the Linux platforms.

The ‘reset’ button works in a simple way. It saves your bookmarks, passwords, cookies, saved forms, browsing history and deletes everything else. After that, Firefox creates a fresh new profile and populates it with the saved data. The new profile looks just like when the browser was first opened after installation.

Michael Verdi, who works on Firefox support team, mentioned that the engineering team has wanted this feature “forever” because it cuts out the majority of the sometimes-complicated troubleshooting steps down to one.

Verdi wrote in a blog post, “I have to say, this thing is like magic. You basically get a brand new Firefox installation without the penalty of losing all your data. This is especially useful as a quick fix for the thousands of posts we see on social media where people often express vague complaints about Firefox. ‘Firefox is slow.’ ‘Firefox crashes too much.’ ‘Firefox sucks.’”

The Reset featured can be accessed from Firefox’s Menu> Help> Troubleshooting Information section. If you want to try it then download Firefox beta.

Important Notes :

* The Reset feature may be broken in Nightly or Aurora. Only try this in Beta.
* It only saves bookmarks, passwords, cookies and form data. You will lose your add-ons, Sync settings, open tabs and tab groups.
* It only works with the default profile. If you’ve opened Firefox via the command line or shortcut with a profile that isn’t the default, you won’t see the Reset Firefox button.

However, Mozilla plans to make it easier for people to find in the future when the browser crashes. Firefox 13 is scheduled for public release in June 5, 2012.

Read more about Reset Firefox on the support site and then download Firefox Beta and try it out.
