Auto reload is useful (e.g. for forums like these), but if you navigate away (like to read a topic) and come back, the auto reload is disabled. I wonder if it would be useful to save the setting for a page in a tab or a whole tab so that when you come back, it gets set again

Then again, maybe I should just be launching my topic browsing in new tabs :-)

I would like a feature that autoreloads the same page, even if you go to another page but I mainly just use
autoreload for index pages or pages that timeout when I don't want them to and then middle-click topics
to open them in new windows.

It's a great feature.

In the latest TBE you can set "Keep status when other pages are loaded" under Advanced Use to do exactly what you need.
