What do you mean with "the bar above the page"?

I used an ESPN game boxscore to check this out. It automatically refreshes fine for me. Can you please provide a URL that doesn't work for you?

You have open an account with IowaTelecom.net Webmail to see what I am talking about.  Go to http://www.iowatelecom.net/ and log in to Webmail.

Sorry, but this won't work. You have to provide an example URL that does not require us to "open an account with IowaTelecom" first. And I'd still like to know what this "bar above the page" reads.

Can you check that the option "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page" in the Firefox Preferences (see http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Options+window#General_tab) is not enabled?

Thanks. I unchecked "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page" and the problem has disappeared.
