Jump to Page (tab) should force a Refresh
... or have that option
(Firefox :: General, enhancement)

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101103 Firefox/4.0b8pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101103 Firefox/4.0b8pre I have a mixed opinion on the "Jump to Page (tab)" option from the type-ahead in the address bar. It does help keep one's tabs from getting overly cluttered, but can cause a person to loose one's place. However, What would be really handy would be an option to: Jump To Page + Refresh. So, if one is looking for an update on one's favorite BBS, one can jump to that page AND force a refresh. Actually, I would think some of the browser behaviors would be setup as an option. Type-ahead jump to page (enabled/disabled) Refresh on jump to page (enabled/disabled). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have one's favorite BBS page open in a tab, backgrounded 2. Start typing the name of the page. 3. Hit Tab Key & Return 4. Browser jumps to the backgrounded page/tab. Actual Results: Browser jumps to backgrounded tab. Old data is displayed. User must hit Ctrl-R to get page to refresh. Expected Results: Browser would jump to backgrounded page. Option to automatically refresh with new data.
