Ah. I see that has been replaced by Reload Plus. Its notes refer to ReloadEvery as "aging."

I loaded Reload Plus, but it doesn't have the option we're talking about.

Oh well.

ReloadEvery still works quite well. I still have it from a previous incarnation and it works in FF 12.
I am aging and work quite well. :happy:

I'll take your word for that. :smile:

I figured it out. I was using Nightly, where ReloadEvery is unavailable. I switched to 9.01, and there it was. I loaded it and then went back to Nightly, where it seems to work fine.

Life is good.

Good. One thing I do not like about it. It follows the tab. So if you reply to a post and it opens in the same tab it will reload at the interval you set. If you have written some of the post but not finished and it kicks in you lose what you have written. Solution is to open the editor in a new tab.
Google Chrome handles it better with the auto-reload add on. It follows the webpage, so you do not run into that frustrating wipe out.

The non-addon Firefox has a Reload choice with a right-click. I have no addons that would cause that. Opera has the option (to reload every....) as a default.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

That is just a manual reload in FF, and is in the default.

BTW: "Reload Every" does work in Nightly. It just "showed up" when i installed Nightly as I use the same profile as 9.01.

And it's easier to hit F5.

Not easier than it doing it automatically.

As I said, there is a Reload choice in the right-click menu in FF. I'd have said a 'Reload every...' if that was there.
