Does firefox have a refresh key? I have tried looking through the help features.
Hi - I am relatively new to firefox and am use to seeing a refresh option when I was formerly using IE, by right clicking on the mouse. I tried researching foxfire articles, but have not come upon an answer.
Would appreciate help in telling me where I can find a refresh button or similar option.
Thanks in advance for your help.

- Shockwave Flash 12.0 d0
- Google Update
- The QuickTime Plugin allows you to view a wide variety of multimedia content in Web pages. For more information, visit the QuickTime Web site.
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.04
- iTunes Detector Plug-in
- Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) plug-in for Mozilla browsers

- Firefox has a unified/combined Go-Stop-Reload/Refresh button at the right end of the address/location/URL bar (default)
- green right pointing arrow when typing in the address/location/URL bar = Go
- red "X" while page is loading = Stop
- circular arrow = Reload/Refresh page (from the cache)
- you can move the unified/combined buttons out of the address/location/URL bar and have separate buttons for Stop and Reload/Refresh on your Navigation toolbar
- F5 to Reload/Refresh the page (from the cache)
- Ctrl+F5 to Reload/Refresh the page from the server (bypassing cache)
When you right-click the page, you should see Back, Forward, Reload as the first three items. Back and Forward will be grayed out if not available. Note that if you right-click certain items such as an image, a link, a plugin (such as Flash), or a form field (such as this box I'm typing in), these three items won't be listed, so try right-clicking a blank area of the page.
And for keyboard enthusiasts, two more:
- Ctrl+r (regular reload)
- Ctrl+Shift+r (reload bypassing cached files)
Some entries in the View and History menu have been removed to clean up the user interface because studies showed that these were low usage items (Bugs 519937,513168,896918; please do not comment in bugs).
On Windows and Linux these were already hidden when you used to mouse to access the menu bar and only appeared when you used the keyboard.
You can click the toolbar Home button (far right on Navigation Toolbar) or use the keyboard (Alt/Option + Home).
You can find Back, Forward, and Reload in the right-click context menu in the browsing area or use the buttons on the Navigation Toolbar.
