Is there a way to tell Firefox to reload a page every time? I'm a web designer and need to see what it looks like every time I open pages that I'm doing.

In IE, you can set the program to reload a page from the web each time you visit a page. I can't find a way to do that in FF. I'd prefer to only reload the websites that I work on rather than everything on the web, but that's likely not possible with any browser.

Win 7-x64 16 GB RAM ATI Radeon HD 5670

Thanks for any help one can offer!

You can also reload web page(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.

  • Hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
  • Press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
  • Press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)

Thank you! The "Tab Auto Reload" seems to be what I needed!
