CTRL-F5 / CTRL-R does not refresh CSS

Dear all,

just discovered that v3.6.12 doesn't refresh CSS files when CTRL-F5/CTRL-R is pressed.

The HTML source and all pictures are refreshed, but my expectation was that the _complete_ page should be reloaded and this would include CSS, as well.

This might have been the case with earlier versions as I recall having seen that before, but I didin't pay attention at that time.

However, this is very annoying. When you update your CSS only you will now have to close the tab/window and reopen it to see changes reflected.

Any pointers ?

In Firefox 6.0 CTRL-F5 doesn't update any linked CSS or Javascript files - the only way round this is to open the CSS / JS in a new tab and refresh it there and then go back to the main page - this seems to force it to update.
