- by KasiKuula, 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5Good start, but needs ui features to be more user friendly.
Page reload settings saved from menu.
Default reload settings.
Do not reload if tab is active, could just add X minutes to check active status again.
Icon menu do not show fully when in overflow menu.
Just to name a few.

The idea is cool, implementation sucks.
Preferences setup do not work, specifically defining pages/domains to auto reload without manually setting it up.
Example1: In preferences, I defined hostnames to auto reload, but it doesn't work - tabs are NOT reloaded.
Example2: when I removed *google.com from the pasted example, all gogle pages keep re-loading until I turn that off manually for each tab.
Yes the syntax is correct, yes I did restart everything (and multiple times), yes my PC is turned ON. I'm not a novice - the extension doesn't work.
- by Pierre-Adrien Buisson, 2 years agoRated 3 out of 5Pretty good, does the job. I personally find the popup a bit confusing, but okay.
However, I'd love an easier way to check if a tab has autoreload enabled (now, we must check the toolbar icon color when on a tab, so I need to visit each tab that I expect to have auto-reload enabled, and check the toolbar icon color). I also notice issues with the restore feature, I often need to manually re-enable the reloader, it does not get restored (I typically monitor 2 pages, keep them pinned, and I need to re-enable Tab Reloader on those two tabs when I close Firefox).
- by witrak(), 2 years agoRated 2 out of 5If you want the page on the tab to be refreshed only in case when you don't do anything on it for some time this add-on will not help you! (It should be clearly stated in the description.)
Even if you just changed the contents of the tab the extension will reload it again when the countdown timer reaches 0.
This is useful ONLY if you don't touch the page and want it to be periodically reloaded.
