    Default Hard refresh page to reload images?

    This used to be an easy feature in Firefox, where you just had to press Ctrl+F5 and it was done. It hasn't been working for me for years, but I still see it being listed on various pages as the correct solution.

    Currently I'm on Fedora 30 with Firefox 76.0.

    Any idea how I can just hard refresh a single page without having to manually delete the entire Firefox cache?

    Ctrl+F5 works fine for me in Firefox (currently on version 79.0 here), not sure why it wouldn't be for you?

    If you press shift+F9 you can open up the dev-tools that allow you to delete cache, cookies, etc

    BTW ctrl+F5 works fine for me too. Something is up with your computer probably

    Shift-clicking the reload button in the address bar is another way to do a hard refresh.

    Then maybe my problem isn't with the cache and something with my website.

    But thanks.

    Try Ctrl+R next time. That is how I refresh.

    On Chrome, if you right click -> inspect to open the developer console, you can then click and hold the reload button to get additional options: Normal Reload, Hard Reload, Empty Cache and Hard Reload. Those options only appear if the developer console is open though.

    The original post does specify using Firefox.
