    Being so used to hitting F5 to reload/refresh a page in browsers (I still use FF under XP at work) I tried using keyboard shortcuts in Prefs to change it in Safari.

    Restarted Safari and the View menu showed F5 next to Reload Page instead of Cmd-R - but it didn't work (I also tried Fn-F5 and that didn't either).

    Is this possible? If there are reasons for not using the F-keys in this way surely it shouldn't allow you to set them up?

    BTW, I'd prefer to have F5 in addition to Cmd-R, is this possible?

    I couldn't get it to work. I could do CTRL + F5, but F5 alone wouldn't work for me.

    Thanks - at least I know I haven't done something wrong.

    I know, that's why I want it in Safari as well
