User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050908 Firefox/1.4 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050908 Firefox/1.4 Add a pulldown to the "Reload current page" toolbar icon (like the pulldown on the Back and Forward icons) that shows a list of a few auto-reload frequencies. When the user chooses one of these, it is checked and the page auto-reloads itself at that choosen frequency. For example, the user goes to yahoo.com and clicks on the Reload pulldown, a list is shown: 1 minute 5 minutes 30 minutes 1 hour 24 hours The user clicks on '5 minutes'. Now that page is auto-reloaded (as if the user clicked the reload button themselves) every 5 minutes. The '5 minutes' option would be checked, so they can see what they choose. The user can change it to some other frequency. You could even save the auto-reload settings per page in some dB. So, later visits to the site have the same auto-reload frequencies. Also, ideally, the page would reload and position itself automatically to the same position on the page it was originally at. Ie: if the user is 50% down the page when the reload occurs, the reload will happen and the screen will display from the 50% point downward. Reproducible: Always
There's an extension and a bookmarklet with this function. http://subsimple.com/bookmarklets/collection_navigation.asp
See bug 278098.
I was really wanting this to be an integral part of the browser, not an add-on. People don't have to add-on 'back' and 'forward', why do they have to add this on?
I think because the Back and Forward buttons are elementary but not this continuous reload function.
