Before the most recent Firefox update (Quantum, 57.0.1) I was able to refresh a page, including the cache, by pressing Shift+F5 rather than simply F5. This is no longer the case. Now, pressing Shift+F5 opens the page inspector, same as pressing F12.

Does anyone know what the new force refresh shortcut is? I looked through the Web Developer tools in Firefox but didn't find anything.


Force refresh has always been Ctrl+F5 or Ctrl+Shift+R

Shift+F5 is used to run the Profiler



It's been Ctrl+F5 for as long as I can remember.
