firefox refresh: on windows

not sure how this works on other platforms, by my windows firefox flavor does not tend to do a full refresh when i hit f5 or [refresh icon].
upon reading about this annoyance, SHIFT+[refresh icon]Click grabs the page from the server, not the cache during the refresh. odd. i though that was the pupose of refresh.
at least now i can see my posts!

my thought on this is that sometimes you loose packets and the page doesn't display properly so you don't need to get a full refres off the server, just get the stuff you are missing.
i have formed the habit of pressing shift+refresh whenever i want a refresh.
the interesting thing i just noticed is that ctrl+R does reload... that might be easier.
