where is my refresh button?

Posted

Where the hell is my "refresh" button!!!!!! I've had it no matter what server i have. now you upgrade me after constant computer harassing, and i have no REFRESH BUTTON! No, i am not as smart as u, or even close to it, but i used to LOVE firefox. I even gave up microsoft crap for you. but now, you have gone too far. and no, i am not going to follow instructions in order to get to 2 arrows refreshing my page!

Chosen solution

If you right-click in the blank section (at the top of your browser) next to your tabs and choose "Customize", you will be able to find the Refresh or Reload button. You will have to drag and drop the button onto your Navigation bar. Hope this works for you.

More Information

Nothing. it's a standard refresh button. this did not happen before i downloaded your "new" version. I will not work extra hard to find it myself. that's YOUR job. I did love Firefox before, but, COME ON!!! No refresh button without a friggin essay guiding me? I don't think so.........not when there's all kinds of meaningless shit up there. Fix my Firefox, or send me back to the old one.

If you do move the Reload and Stop buttons elsewhere and want to keep them separate. Either place them as Stop then Reload or if you want them as Reload then Stop then place something in between like a flexible space.

I found it! I had the same problem and didn't realize reload/refresh had been moved. It isn't an icon on the toolbar any more.

I was poking around, trying to follow solution #1 but couldn't find reload/refresh on the Customize Toolbar panel. Then I happened to notice the tiny circular arrow at the right end of my address window (or whatever you call it) after the current URL.
