My Firefox freezes up when I have too many flash videos loading at the same time. Wrote a simple script to restart Firefox every time this happens.

#simple script to kill and restart firefox
#20th August 2007
#Writen by Danesh aka Danny
#``` #look for the firefox PID `` PID=ps -ef | grep firefox-bin | grep -v grep | awk ‘{print $2}’`` #locate firefox executable `` FIRE=which firefox`` #kill firefox CMD=�kill -9 $PID� ``$CMD`` #pause for 2 seconds ``sleep 2`` #start firefox CMD=�$FIRE� ``$CMD &`` #End of script`

I will be adding more functionality to the script in the future. Once sure feature will be the ability to choose either to kill all running instances or just kill a specific instance.
