ARCHIVE / How do I perform a hard refresh in Firefox?
There are different ways to do a hard refresh in Firefox depending on whether you're using a Windows, Macintosh or other operating system. Also, it's helpful to note that in Firefox's documentation, refresh is referred to as reload. For Windows, holding down the Ctrl or Shift key while clicking on the refresh button works as does pressing Ctrl-F5. For Macintosh and all other operating systems, holding down the Shift key while clicking on the refresh button works as does pressing Command-Shift-R. Additionally, on Macintosh, holding down the Option or Command key while clicking on the Refresh button appears to work as well.
