It is also known as reload, if it is not displayed on the navigation toolbar follow the procedure in the Customize Firefox controls, buttons and toolbars article to add it to the toolbar. If that does not help, the Navigation buttons like back, home, bookmarks and reload are missing article can help to either restore the default toolbar set, or rest toolbars and controls.

You can click the Refresh button on the Navigation Toolbar or press "Ctrl + R" or F5 to reload a web page.

You can reload the page and bypass the cache with:

  • Press and hold Shift and left-click the Reload button.
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Cmd + Shift + R" (MAC)
