I follow my investments using the investment company's website. Today's data using Firefox does not reflect completley today's updates but retains some of yesterday's data. Why? What do I need to do?

Duh, refresh. I did refresh in all ways possible, including the using the CTRL and SHIFT keys. Still didn't refresh. (Updated properly in IE.) Does FF have a problem refreshing frames, perhaps? (Robohelp WebHelp uses frames.)

Firefox should reload frames from the website if you reload and bypass the cache.
Make sure that you do not use bookmarks that have GET data appended to the links (?xxx=xxx)
