So basically I need a script (bash I think?) that will simply open Firefox (or Chrome), full screen it, and literally refresh the website every 30 seconds or so.

I was able to do this so easily on windows using VBScript but I can't find any resources online on how to do similar things on Ubuntu (i.e. send F5 to Firefox every 30 seconds, I thought this would be simple).

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Not a firefox addon, but its own web browser...
