In the discussion groups on The Motley Fool (TMF) website, when new entries are
created the list of unread messages automatically refreshes every time the
reader returns to the main list (from within a message that he is reading). 
This works correctly under Netscape 4.7x and Internet Explorer, but doesn't work
under Netwcape 7.x or Mozilla (any version).  Pressing the Refresh button does
the job, but that defeats the purpose of the autorefresh feature.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to a discussion group, such as the url provided above. (Free registration
may be required.)
2.Click on the newest (last) message to open it.
3.Leave the message open and wait 30-60 minutes before closing it (to give other
people time to add new messages). If any new messages were created in the
meantime, the message list should be refreshed to show it. If no new messages
appear after the one you opened, press the refresh button. If new messages
appear now, the autorefresh feature failed.
4.Now try the same experiment with NS 4.7x or IE 4.0 or later. Autorefresh
should work correctly.

Actual Results:  
Autorefresh fails, with every version of Mozilla I have tried, as well as with
NS versions using the Mozilla core.

Expected Results:  
The web site autorefresh feature should work the same as it does with NS 4.7x.

Using both MSIE6.0 and Mozilla1.6b, they both don't refresh. There's no metatag
or script on that page that tells anything to refresh either, so it works as it
should.
