The plugin get’s updates from a remote process and generate JS code which is passed back to the web page using NPN_Invoke or NPN_Evaluate. My problem is that page is not updated unless I initiate it using a button or some key stroke.

This kind of query belongs on the webkit-help list rather than webkit-dev.

This sounds like a bug, probably one related to how style recalculation and render tree updating is done. A bug report with an example is a good way to go.
