Refresh keyboard shortcuts not working in Unity 8

Bug #1579775 reported by Michael Hall on 2016-05-09

Bug Description

Neither the F5 nor Ctrl+R keyboard shortcuts for refreshing a page work under a Unity 8 session. They both work under Unity 7. Other shortcuts, such at Ctrl+T and Ctrl+W, work fine under Unity 8.

Nothing appears in when pressing F5 or Ctrl+R ~/.cache/upstart/application-legacy-webbrowser-app-.log

My unity8 desktop session is broken, no app starts, so I can’t observe the issue.

Michael, can you run the following standalone QML example in your unity8 session and let me know whether it works (i.e. something is printed in the window when pressing Ctrl+R or F5)?

import QtQuick 2.5
import QtQuick.Window 2.2
Window {
  width: 400
  height: 300
  Text {
    id: label
    anchors.centerIn: parent
    onTextChanged: timer.restart()
  Timer {
    id: timer
    interval: 2000
    onTriggered: label.text = ""
  Shortcut {
    sequence: StandardKey.Refresh
    onActivated: label.text = "Ctrl+R pressed!"
  Shortcut {
    sequence: "F5"
    onActivated: label.text = "F5 pressed!"

This sounds like missing key mappings in qtubuntu.
