For some reason the following JS will not refresh the page when the window.location.href = window.location.href fires. However, if I do a right click on the page and click Refresh the page reacts okay:

Have you tried the location object's reload() method?

As usual while I am waiting for a response I keep looking for a soultion myself(still very limited on my knowledge of web developement and all its diversity). I just tried the reload() method and it worked great. What is the difference in the two ways of doing this. I have some pages where the first method I tried works fine but for some reason not in this case.

Again, thanks for the invaluable help you have been for the last few months.

Based on your browser's cache settings.

Use Fiddler and look at the difference in the requests.
