Stupid question, I know, but after years of using Firefox, on this one I can't find the Page Reload icon?? Please help.

In the past, when I want to refresh a page, I've simply gone to the page reload icon on the toolbar. On the new version, I can't fin the reload icon. Sorry I know this is a very stupid question,, but I just can't find that reload icon. The toolbar is a lot different from previous versions, but I'm sure tht pesky icon must be there somewhere!!

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.

Hi merren,

Not a stupid question at all Smiley Happy You should take a look at this article with common questions after upgrading.

You could also benefit from the looking at the article on customizing the tool bar. That will show you not only how to verify that you have the refresh button, but give you options on where it lives as well.

Hopefully this helps!

Thankyou very much. Your advice about reading information sheets is very timely, and shows that it does pay to check. It's easy to get blase over the years.
