    I wanted to do this with my webmail, so filters that I set up would run every minute and get rid of the spam... You would replace "my webmail webpage" with which ever site you wanted. Save the html file on your computer then bookmark it.

    Here's the code:
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="60">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>My Webmail Auto Refresh</title>
    </head>

    <frameset rows="10,*" frameborder="NO" border="0" framespacing="0">
    <frame src="EmailRefreshBackground.htm" name="topFrame" scrolling="NO" noresize>
    <frame src="my webmail website" name="mainFrame">
    </frameset>
    <noframes><body>
    </body></noframes>
    </html>

    big kudos to freeflydrew for your code! I love that this is brower-agnostic, super simple, and useful for people stuck with old webmail sites! automatic refresh functionality of sites should really be baked into the browser, but oh well...
