Force clean reload

Hi, I use firefox as main browser for developing and I got problem with its cache.

changes in code are not visible automatically, firefox keeps files in chache. So it happens, that I make some change and it takes long time, when the effect show. I am now compensating it by Test pilot Containers modules, but it is not much comfortable, to have one page loaded 5 times and after any small change trying to refresh all tabs, if some of them will reload propertly.

Also, I know the CTRL+F5 and CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcuts, but it does nothing. It will not do the clean reload, it again takes cached files.

So, any other shortcut/way, how to force a tab to get purely loaded from server?

Thanks :)

Also I have found Disable cache while console is open in dev console, but still not working.

I edit some file, reload (console is open), still changes will not take effect immediately, it takes quite an amount of refreshes :(

I would expect Ctrl+F5 should work to override the cache.

Use the built in net console to confirm what's happening.

Hey, Hi, any update on this from official places?

Hard to develope something like this, if I use 2 addons for deleting cache, then CTRL+F5 and still it very often takes like more than 5 reloads till the changes take effect ... especially if you are designing something and you want to preview changes step by step :(
