Use this add-on, ReloadEvery: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/115/

Its functionality is accessible from the page context menu (right click anywhere on a page).

If that isn't what you meant, please elaborate.

This is not the answer to this problem, but to the inverse problem.

The guy wants to turn ON automatic refresh when the website's author didn't plan for that; "Warn me when web sites try to redirect or reload the page" is an option to turn OFF automatic refresh (or redirect) when the website's author *did* define automatic refresh (or redirect).
