Forum Question: How do I set Safari to auto reload page

How do I set the reload preference time in Safari to automatically reload the page that I am looking at. Specifically I want to automatically reload the “My Account” eBay page without having to do it manually with either the mouse or the hot keys.

    There’s no preference for that.
    You could write an Automator script to do it, I suppose. There is also a JavaScript “trick” to do it.
    But now that we have Safari Extensions, I would do it that way. A quick look at the Safari Extensions Gallery (Safari menu, Safari Extensions Gallery) shows at least one extension that does what you want.

    What you are suggesting seems to be far too advanced for me. I went to “Safari Extensions Gallery” but didn’t find, or probably didn’t know what I was looking for. I probably had better just leave things as they are. I was just trying to save a little time and hand arm motion. Thanks anyway, I think that your doing a great service for Mac users. I know that it has sure helped me out several times.

      When on the Safari Extensions Gallery, search for (Command+F) “refresh” and it will scroll down to an extension called “Auto Refresh” that looks like it does what you want. Click its install button and it looks like it is pretty straight-forward from there. It apears at the top of the window, and you get a new button in the toolbar.
