I just discovered this feature of Firefox 7 and I find it really interesting. The only part I didn't understood is if it automatically refresh tabs every X time, that's really something important because I don't know if I have to do it every time I visit the page

Any information will be useful,

The "pin tab" feature of FF7 doesn't refresh the page, however ReloadEvery will do reloads, but not for pinned tabs only, and not automatically when you defocus the tab.

So unfortunately there isn't feature within FF or any current extensions that will automatically reload a pinned tab periodically when unfocused.

You are right I'm talking about pin tab, which is a new feature in firefox 7 (no i don't have tab mix plus), unfortunately I traduct it wrongly from italian –  Fire-Dragon-DoL Oct 19 '11 at 0:42
    
Ah ok, no problem. I have updated. –  Paul Oct 19 '11 at 0:46
    
Well, not exactly what I'm thinking about: I need something that refresh only Pinned tabs and expecially when they are not selected (the timer should start when I remove focus from it and reset when it's gained) –  Fire-Dragon-DoL Oct 19 '11 at 1:00

Ok. The answer is "no" then - there isn't feature within FF or any current extensions that will automatically reload a pinned tab periodically when unfocused. –  Paul Oct 19 '11 at 1:07
    
Write it in your answer so I can mark, thanks ^^ –  Fire-Dragon-DoL Oct 19 '11 at 1:11

Check4Change which will "periodically check a web-page for updates" does the trick.
