A WebExtension which adds the reload button to the Firefox Location bar.

This makes it look the way it did in Firefox Australis (29 – 56).

To get rid of the reload button in the location bar, you need to drag it off the Navigation bar in the Customise view.

To fix the icon being too dark when using dark themes, you currently need to enable svg.context‑properties.content.enabled in about:config, because Mozilla (see also: SVGWG issue #348).
Risk impact

Reload button in Location bar is safe to use. It does not request any sensitive permissions.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Reload button in Location bar has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

Honestly amazing. A must have addon.

Very nice, but with Proton out there it may be nice to use the new thinner icons to better blend in.
