Description

18 years ago
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.

why is this a Layout bug?

This looks like bloat to me. If you want this, just make a bookmarklet:
javascript:location.href=location.href;

I suggest WONTFIX

See bug 63782 comment 15 "Reload text (Ignore HTML in the cache, but use it for
other objects)", related to bug 63782?

It has been pointed out to me that this (re-requesting images) behavior also
occurs when the browser receives a "Refresh: n; url=same_page" header; but the
images are pulled from cache if the header is "Refresh: n; url=somewhere_else".
There appears to be no way to request (using HTTP only, no javascript) that the
browser refresh only the HTML. This behavior of the Refresh: header also seems
rather inconsistent.
