Since bug 230693 is fixed, different behaviors between a tabbed view-source window and a standalone window are visible: tabbed mode: 1. Ctrl+R - Reload from cache 2. F5 - Reload from cache 3. Shift+Ctrl+R - Reload by skipping the cache 4. Ctrl+F5 - Nothing window mode: 1. Ctrl+R - Reload by skipping the cache 2. F5 - Reload by skipping the cache 3. Shift+Ctrl+R - Reload by skipping the cache 4. Ctrl+F5 - Nothing IMO the behavior of tabbed mode is that one we need. Using the first and second one, when you only want to update view-source with the current cached content. This will happen when you are examining a dynamic page and trying to see exactly it's current content. Instead the third point is useful to test the dynamic creation of a page while not switching between the webpage and view-source. Here we can't use the cache. Last but not least, Ctrl+F5 should behave like Shift+Ctrl-R. Currently we don't have homogeous shortcuts between these two types of view-source. For accessibility reasons we should fix this.
