A feature I've always wished for in a browser is a way to reload just the HTML portion of a page, but not the images on it. This would be useful for, e.g. checking to see if any new stories have appeared on Slashdot without having to reload all the little images. This feature could appear as an extra menu item in the right-click menu, or perhaps could be activated by right-clicking the Reload button.
We have already been talking about at least a pref to control that. Having a UI option like right-click is also cool. cc'ing some relevant people.

Yes, I too think that would be nice... but not just for Linux. Changing Platform and OS to All and adding self to CC.

Great Idea, it would be a big time saver. Its more or less a missing piece of an idea I tried to get out in March. Anyway, I think it might be better as Parser or Networking:Cache for a component but I won't change anything, yet. Adding myself to CC List.
perhaps we could do the reload button as a dropdown list (like forward/back buttons) In any case, the required work is in docshell and xul. Over to docshell

Has anything been done on this lately? Reload button should reload the image if the URL not a web page, if the URL is nothing more than an image. See bug 140670.
