Refresh firefox Current display page using keyboard shortcut without focusing on firefox window.

Posted

I want to refresh the current page tab that the firefox browser opened without focusing on it. For example, I am focusing on a text editor (creating some serverside code) and I save some changes, and trigger my custom shortcut (i.e [ctrl+alt+space+a]) keys to refresh firefox browser without focusing on it.
