Reload the Page

To accelerate navigation, the most common Internet browsers store the information seen on the internet so that they do not have to be re-downloaded. This is called the browser cache. Most of the time, this is a good thing that makes the user experience more fluid.
However this may still be a problem when updating the online application, in some cases the browser may work with a mixture of old data and new data that do not coincide well together.
The consequences of this joyful mix can be diverse: abnormal or bizarre behavior, buttons that do not have the expected action etc.

The solution to this is to force the browser to refresh the entire page. There is a shortcut that is almost universal: Ctrl + F5 to refresh the page by emptying the cache beforehand.
