Greetings catannbingo !

No, Yahoo and Hotmail themselves do not have periodic auto refresh.   Firefox have an autorefresh extension that you can addon to refresh every x minutes

Best wishes, war1

If you Firefox to download the extension, it will auto install it also.  Right click on the web page the you want to reload, and select ReloadEvery in context menu.  Then you can set the time interval to reload.
