Comments on Google Chrome reload all tabs extension

19 Replies: (add yours)


Hi, when I go to Save the Google Chrome extension for "reload all tabs," I get an error pop-up that says, "Invalid value for 'permissions[0]'" and halts the installation.

Fix possible?

Hi Koji,

Make sure you are using the "dev" channel. The current beta, and stable builds do not have extension support for this extension.

Is it possible to add option to reload all tabs in the menu that comes up when any tab is right clicked?

Q: Chrome extensions doesn't currently support custom context menus, once they do, I will surely update this extension (which you will receive it autoupdated) :)

Hi, is it possible to make it refresh the crashed tabs also?

By the way, thanks for both of your extensions. Very helpful.

Soon, I adding that feature to the extension API, and after I commit it, I will update this extension to refresh all crashed tabs.

Does not work with Chromium and Pinned tabs for some reason.

Works great, I pinned a tab and it works as expected.

Unfortunately it still does not work with pinned tabs.

Using Chromium build 39435 in Windows.

I pin several tabs, and try Ctrl+Shift+R, nothing happens to pinned tabs. But as soon as I remove the pinning the reloading works again.

Could you please try it with pinned tabs again?

Maybe there is bug in chrome.tabs.getAllInWindow() function. Perhaps it does not return pinned tabs at all.

I have to test this function myself, I wish one could open up a console and just type that function...

I found the bug feature.

I went to some random extensions settings page, and opened up console: (win) { chrome.tabs.getAllInWindow(, function (tabs) { for (var i = 0; i < tabs.length; i++) { chrome.tabs.update(tabs[i].id, {selected: true}) } }) });


Error during tabs.update: Cannot update pinned tabs

Error during tabs.update: Cannot update pinned tabs

Quiet simply, chrome.tabs.update() is not allowed for pinned tabs.

Yea, I heard there is no pinned tabs support for that, I think I can find an exception. But that will require more privileges for the extension. Maybe we should wait till the bug is fixed.

Hi, good job mate :)

Is it possible to arrange the Reload time of a web page at a desired time (for example Reload Every in FF do tis from 0 sec to as many minutes you want)

Hi, great feature. I'm wondering if there is a way to set a reload time on this extention?

chrome is faster from screen to screen, too bad it doesnt have a set auto reload

this will put gamers off

You're my hero!

Is there anyway to get this to work in incognito mode? I try to browse in this mode more so because it doesn't seem to keep as much junk on my comp, but the addon only seems to work in normal window mode. Thanks!
