Currently, when I develop a Firefox extension that uses JavaScript Modules (JSM), then I have to disable the extension -> restart Firefox -> enable the extension -> restart Firefox in order to execute any modifications that I make to to a JSM file.

Is there a better way, such that I can reload the JSM with only a single restart of Firefox perhaps?

  • nglayout.debug.disable_xul_fastload to true
  • nglayout.debug.disable_xul_cache to true

As described on
