    Hello all,

    Is there a way or add-on "if yes, which one?" to auto-refresh the index page to show alerts/PM bubbles?

    Yes, please elaborate on what you wish to accomplish. I have no idea what it is you're asking or trying to ask.

    LOL guys, I'm sorry.
    I have no idea why I wrote "bulls"...

    In fact, I wanted to say this => Bubble.
    You know, the bubble you can see when a private message arrives or an alert when someone quotes you or reply in a thread you follow,...

    PS: I have corrected. Thanks for the remark. ;)

    That makes more sense :)

    There's at least three of these add-ons that work very similarly. Here's one I wrote, but have a search around for some others that may be suitable:


    That will periodically check for new messages, and alerts, and if it finds any, it will update the alert/conversation bulls (bubbles ;) ) and also display the count in the title of the browser tab or optionally as a red icon appearing over your favicon.

    It works on any page, not just the index page.

    I already have your add-on but nothing happens when a message arrives, I mean, when someone sends me a message, no bulls appears even with the delay set to 10 seconds.
    Is this normal or must I do something to apply the add-on on alert/PM instead favicon?

    It should just work.

    If you require support with that you would need to post in the add-on discussion thread.

    I did wonder what conversation bulls were. I thought it was some new alert type that was received when a conversation message contained bulls*** ;)
