  1. I thought I was getting tricked. I use Firefox so this is what I did. Tools>Add-ons (Control+Shift+A)and search Reload Every. I then installed the extension on the list called ReloadEvery 4.0.3. I was looking for a way to stop Twitter from refreshing the page automatically more than I wanted. I’ve now set it to 15 minutes.

  2. Is there any way to enable the addon when firefox starts up instead of having to right click and enable it manually every time?
