Auto refresh in Firefox
There are times when I want a site on a certain tab to refresh often and mostly so that the session doesn't expire and I am required to login again and lately I have discovered some two very handy Firefox extensions.
The extension that I use a lot for that is ReloadEvery which you can specify how often you would like a particular tab to be refreshed.
You can set ReloadEvery to refresh all your tabs after a certain time interval and also you can opt out some tabs as well.
I quite like the idea of being able to make tabs refresh at different intervals because there are some tabs that I open for reference and the information will not be changing at all and therefore reloading is not required.
For manual refreshing then the extension Reload Tab On Double-Click will do the job.
As the name implies you double click the tab you want refreshed.
