Mozilla + F5


Just a quick question to ask if F5 can be mapped to Reload pages in Mozilla? Konqueror can, and I've got so used to doing it in You-Know-What (and I don't mean Voldemort).

Cheers,
Dan

ha ha ha ha, Not very helpful, and really not very funny but it hit a funny bone nonetheless... Please in the future hold off on the not-quite-so-helpful suggestions until someone has responded with a more direct 'helpful' answer to the originators question

I'm not sure if you are aware of the key combo CTRL + R to refresh, but if not, now you do, and maybe you can make that work for ya

Cool

Yeah, I was. It's would just save me a lot of unecessary F5 pounding before I remember it.

And yeah, Mad, that was pretty much random. Well, made me giggle anyways.

And, as my question has been answered as fully as I expect it will be, I may as well stop this topic dying and ask what the differences between Mozilla and Firebird are?

Cheers,
Dan

sorry about being random, but then i'm not called mad for nothin!

as regards your question, i've been reading up on it, and the only thing i could find was a part in O'Reilly about configuring emacs. apparently, there is such a thing as a .emacs (i couldn't find this on my system, but i suppose it would be in your home directory). he says you can remap keys in this file. i don't see why something like this couldn't be done for mozilla too. but as i said, i couldn't find such a file on my system. i'll keep looking.

as for differences, ah...improved bookmark management, tabbed browsing (this is awesome), a little different look and feel, and of course it's just the browser so it's a leaner, meaner package. i think www.mozilla.org lists a few things, if you're interested.

Standard Mozilla has tabbed browsing. Even Konqueror has tabbed browsing! I'll probably check it out.

More importantly, can it use F5?
