From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1a+) Gecko/20020701 BuildID: 2002070108 When I press F5 or click the Reload arrow on the toolbar, Mozilla checks if the content has been updated before reloading it. I can press Shift+Reload to force Mozilla to reload everything. However, Shift+F5 does not activate a full reload. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Sign up with any dial-up Internet service provider. (It's easiest to see the bug when pages take a while to reload.) 2. Connect to the Internet. 3. Go to a relatively static web page. 4. Press Shift+Reload. 5. Press Shift+F5. Actual Results: Shift+F5 does nothing at all. Expected Results: Shift+F5 acts the same as Shift+Reload, that is, Shift+F5 causes a full reload. IE 5.52 doesn't bind Shift+F5 to Shift+Refresh either. This bug affects the accessibility of Mozilla to users with difficulty using a mouse. Here's a workaround: 1. Turn on your OS's keyboard pointing device. On the Mac, it's Cmd+Shift+Clear; on Windows, it's Alt+Shift+NumLock. I don't know much about the accessibility of UNIX® systems. 2. Move the pointer to the reload button. 3. Shift+keypad 5 to click.
Ctrl+Shift+R and Ctrl+F5 work. If there's a reason why binding Shift+F5 to "force reload" is a bad thing, feel free to resolve this bug INVALID.
The shortcut for force-reload in IE for Windows is Ctrl+F5. Mozilla provides Ctrl+Shift+R and Ctrl+F5. See bug 84622 for adding keyboard shortcuts to the help menu.
