Your advise to hold the F5 button and left click the screen refresh is not a fix to the fact that Firefox will not refresh itself most of the time on my Windows 10/64 machine. Chrome and Edge do not have this problem on my machine, and I prefer Firefox so I wish you'd fix the issue instead of offering workarounds.

Thank you,

Maybe " F5 button and left click" is an older keyboard shortcut or is for another browser -
