comment Is there a way to determine how much memory each Firefox add-on is leaking?
Here is a hall of shame for start-up time impact (via‌​). I don't know of tests measuring memory impact on a typical tabbed browsing session, but I agree they are needed.

about:memory with compartments (in nightlies, possibly aurora) is beginning to give an idea of chrome js memory vs tab js memory. Though heap-unclassified takes 40% here.

comment How does a computer restart itself?
That's actually a bit simplistic; there are (many) non-ACPI ways to reboot the computer, and sometimes ACPI alone doesn't work: superuser.com/questions/294681/…

tl;dr there are many ways to reboot; some boards are broken badly enough that pretend to be windows, a heuristic that involves a few tries and sleeping a bit, is the only way.

comment What's the difference between proxy and firewall?
@Xenoactive This kind of thing needs a different name. The HTTP spec defines proxies as used explicitly, and transparent proxies as proxies that don't alter the requests at all.

comment Convert any PDF to an ebook?
It won't be reliable, because converting text to pdf is a lossy operation. Especially if you have scans and need OCR.
