No, it's not a stupid question. From my knowledge, I say that, unless you get into c++ programming, you can't. Unless the page itself, like CF's "Who's online" does it for you. Maybe it has to do with the html of the page. But, getting firefox to refresh every 10 seconds for every page I think is more advanced. Correct me if I'm wrong here people...

Add the following below the <HEAD> in the HTML response:

<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="10" URL= "http://www.computerforums.org">

The HTML Response page will automatically redirect to http://www.computerforums.org

Something like that, I don't know.

Hi,

I don't know that firefox will do it as i dont use firefox. I am currently using Opera browser and this gives u the option of reloading every xx seconds/minutes/hours.
