Is there a setting that allows me to make either IE7 or FireFox refresh the screen at short intervals so I don't have to click it myself?

If I remember right, Firefox has an extension that allows you to set the refresh interval for your tabs.
I'll see if I can find it, and post back.

Tab Mix Plus will do that I know for sure. It will also let you do absolutely anything you want to with tab management, so plus there.

Here is a script for IE, and it refreshes Bleeping Computer forums...change as you need.

(Save in Notepad as autoRefresh.vbs and change the type to "all"

On Error Resume Next

Set objExplorer = CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application")

objExplorer.Navigate "http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/index.php?act=Search&nav=lv&CODE=show&searchid=ba475f9cc6a4f9365f0bdb6e5df9dae2&search_in=topics&result_type=topics&lastdate=0"   
objExplorer.Visible = 1

Wscript.Sleep 5000

Set objDoc = objExplorer.Document

Do While True
	Wscript.Sleep 30000
	objDoc.Location.Reload(True)
	If Err <> 0 Then
		Wscript.Quit
	End If
Loop

Here's the one I was talking about.
Not sure if it's what you're looking for, though.
ReloadEvery

Reloads web pages every so many seconds or minutes. The function is accessible via the context menu (menu you get when you right click on a web page) or via a drop down menu on the reload button


Another one that might do what you want:
Reload Tab On Double-Click

Reload tab when double-clicking on tab.


You can also refresh your tabs, in Firefox, by right-clicking a tab, and selecting either Reload Tab, or Reload All Tabs.
