Firefox includes add-ons to make your Web browsing more pleasant and productive. One of the add-ons allows auto refreshing a page. Use this to refresh a page that doesn't automatically refresh, such as your favorite sport's team page.
Things You'll Need
- ReloadEvery Firefox Extension (you can get this under resources)
Go to the ReloadEvery Web page for add-ons for Firefox.
Click on "Continue to Download."
Click on "Add to Firefox."
A dialogue box will come up asking you to restart Firefox. Click "Restart Firefox."
Once Firefox launches, you will notice a down arrow next to your tab. Click that and this will give you the option of adjusting the auto refresh for the current tab you are in. Choose to enable or disable auto refresh for all your tabs.
To apply auto refresh to a specific tab, click on the tab and right-click anywhere on the Web page. Click "Reload Every."
Tips & Warnings
- Do not use this feature with sensitive information, such as online banking.
