I'm looking for a way to auto-refresh POST a page. By that, I mean the browser will resubmit the form automatically, just like if we had manually clicked the "Continue" button below:

enter image description here

Add-ons I've tried:

  1. RefreshMonkey

  2. Auto Refresh Plus

  3. Easy Auto Refresh

  4. ChromeReload

  5. Page Refresh

However they only allow auto-refresh GET requests.

What may be a solution?

There are a number of browser automation tools which you could look at. They are mostly used for testing web applications, so they can be a little complicated (but very powerful).

Probably the best place to start is iMacros. This one is geared around recording normal user actions in a browser and playing them back.

If you find you need something more powerful, both Selenium and WatiN are very good.

Hmm, I don't need anything powerful. Just a simple refresh-this-tab-every-minute will be fine (of course it needs to resubmit POST data). – Pacerier Jul 12 '12 at 13:30

The Mozilla extention Check4Change resubmits POST data.
