Extensions to auto update pages
These add-ons for Firefox will help us to keep the pages that interest us always updated according to the time that interests us so that we do not have to be aware of manually updating ourselves.
Tab Auto Refresh, updates the browser tabs from time to time
We are talking about an add-on for Firefox that will help us automatically reload and update the tabs we choose. To run it is as simple as opening its pop-up user interface found in the taskbar while visiting a website. Later we adjust the time interval in seconds and, in this way, the selected tab will be updated again every time the established time elapses.
The update occurs based on the tab URL and can be stopped at any time by pressing the button on the UI or by setting the time interval to 0 seconds. It also has a reset function that will not be useful in case we have many tabs updating and we do not want to stop them one by one.

It is a simple extension that will allow us periodically check a web page looking for changes that have occurred.

It will no longer be necessary, because with this plugin we only have to mark the relevant text and establish a time interval. Every time that interval passes, it will be updated, so that we do not have to be aware of it.
It is important to note that Check4Change currently only works with open tabs. It does not continue to monitor those tabs that have been closed, nor does it remember them when Firefox restarts.
