Try this in your ASP, although I'm not too familiar with ASP yet, so I may be way off.

Code:
<%
Set objBCap = Server.CreateObject("MSWC.BrowserType")
If objBCap.Browser = "IE" Then
      dim interval = 50
ElseIf objBCap.Browser = "Netscape" Then
      dim interval = 50000
End If
%>

Hope this helps. :)

Or a javascript version:

<script type="text/javascript">
if(navigator.appName.substr(0,4) =="Micro"){
   document.write('<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="<%=interval%>;url=http://localhost:8080/MSquaredWeb/resource/right_live.jsp">');
}
else{
   document.write('<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="'+<%=interval%>*1000+';url=http://localhost:8080/MSquaredWeb/resource/right_live.jsp">');
}
</script>

Are you simply refreshing right_live.jsp with this META refresh? If so, try this:

<script type="text/javascript">
function refreshIt(){
     window.location.href = self.location.href;
}
var interval = <%=interval%>*1000;
setTimeout('refreshIt()',interval);
</script>

If not simply refreshing, but redirecting:

<script type="text/javascript">
function refreshIt(){
     window.location.href = "http://localhost:8080/MSquaredWeb/resource/right_live.jsp";
}
var interval = <%=interval%>*1000;
setTimeout('refreshIt()',interval);
</script>

Hope that helps.
