Re: web pages not refreshing


F5 does something different.  It reloads the web page in the browser.  It also causes the browse mode buffer to refresh because that is what happens when you refresh the underlying web page.  I would think that using f5 would have very undesirable effects when doing something like filling out a form.  I would think that refreshing the underlying page would remove all information you previously added to the form.

Good morning:  The windows hotkey of f5 also refreshes as well. Have you
tried this key stroke?
