Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.11) Gecko/20071127 Firefox/2.0.0.11

The Reload button in the toolbar has two functions, as we know : normal and SHIFT-click.

That is :
 - undocumented :
  - the tooltip says nothing about it
  -  the help file says nothing about it

 - confusing. Why does this button have two functions, whenn all the rest have one ?

 - inconsistent: for the rest, the SHIFT modifier means "do your action, but in new browser window"

And a related quetion: What is the difference between "Reload" button and "Go" (green arrow right of URL bar) button, when the page is fully loaded ?
This seems like two/three functions spread over two(and half, with shift) buttons, without much logic.

Reproducible: Always

Hi!

How is this after two years still UNCONFIRMED ?

Either the docs exist and the bug is INVALID, or not, in which case it is NEW (and hopefully one day FIXED)

Regards,
David
