It looks like a popular question but it's just the opposite.

When I visit a site in Firefox 15 I have two different behaviours when:

  1. Pressing enter in the address bar
  2. Pressing F5 or the refresh button

If I look in the network console I can see that F5 does a lot more requests, most of them about cached resources and with a 304-Not Modified answer.

Is there's any shortcut to make a quick refresh? Just like pressing enter on the address bar.

Ctrl+L, Enter

Definitely a good answer. A one step key or button would be more confortable, but I don't know if it exists. Thanks. – pmoleri Oct 12 '12 at 19:08
Alt+D is an easier shortcut to press if you are right-handed, in my opinion. – Wk_of_Angmar Oct 19 '12 at 22:30
