http://linuxers.org – Do you have 20+ tabs open all the time while working on Firefox? Then no doubt you would have faced the trouble of Firefox consuming a lot of memory and ofcourse the large time it takes to restore all the tabs at start up. Now, you can get rid of these issues by using the Firefox addon BarTab. This addon lets you selectively keep tabs on your BarTab, which means you can unload them. In this way, you can decrease the memory consumption of Firefox by unloading tabs that you don't require at the moment. The tabs won't disappear (General)
