TooManyTabs: Safes your Memory


In the past i’ve started my Firefox with many open Tabs. The negative Side from that, is that this eats many RAM. But now i’ve found the ultimate Firefox Extension for that. The Name of this Extension is „TooManyTabs“. First of all you have to define Categories.

In my Case i have defined the Categories: Work, openSUSE, Blogs and Social Network. The Tabbar shows like this:

There you can find the active Tabs. On the left Side you can find that:

You have one selected Category, but you can set 3 or four visible Categoriebars. The Best thing now is, that you can „pin“ unneeded Tabs into the Categorie Tab. The Result is, that only the active Tabs using the RAM. If you need an Tab later, you can just klick on it and the Tab is active. AFAIK the unneeded Tabs into the Categories Tab are just freezed, and you can use it without Relogin.

If you are on an Site, who you would like to add into the Categories Tab. you just have to right-click on the Site, then „Send to..“ and you have to choose your Categorie.

Thats it. Try it out. I like it 🙂

Howto – Adobe Flashplayer for X86_64


Unfortunaltely no Flashplayer for x86_64 exists. So far. Now the Adobe Labs released the libflashplayer for x86_64. It is very easy to run it on openSUSE.

First of all, you must download it.  Go to http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html.

Then go to the bottom of the page, and klick on „Download 64-Bit Plugin for Linux“. Now you will see an Dialogbox. At this place you can download the tar.gz File to an Place, you wish.

After them, you go to your shell, and go into the Directory, that you have specified in the Dialogbox. Now you type: „tar xvfz libflashplayer-{insert your Version].tar.gz“. After unpacking you will see an file called „libflashplayer.so“.

Now you have two alternatives:

1.)  If you are the only one on your Computer, you can move the file to: ~/.mozilla/plugins.

2.) If you have more Persons at the computer, you move the file to: /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

After an Restart from Firefox you can use this new plugin.

From the Developers Side the Plugin is in unstable Status. But it works for me very fine. If you would like, try it out. …
