Mozilla Tabs

Posted in English, Linux at 12:26 am by Rodrigo

This is a little script I wrote to ease the interaction between mozilla and the rss-grab gdesklet.

The script checks if there’s an instance of mozilla running. If there is, it opens the url given as argument in a tab inside the running mozilla instance. If there isn’t, it creates a new instance of the browser.

Run this script (instead of mozilla) when there’s a click in one of the gdesklet url’s, and bingo! No more multiple mozilla instances!
