Running Firefox 5 - where is the refresh tab? Do I have to use F5 only? Thanks

Posted

Version 3 had an icon to refresh a page. Version 5 apparently does not. Am I missing something? Thank you. Barry

Chosen solution

Firefox 4 and later use a combined Stop/Reload/Go button that is positioned at the right end of the location bar.
During the page load process it shows as a Stop button and after the loading has finished the button is changed to a Reload button.
If you type in the location bar then that button becomes a Go button.
Middle-click the Reload button to duplicate the current tab to a new tab.
