Bug Description

While researching why

https://code.launchpad.net/~santoshbit2007/webbrowser-app/webcontainer_shortcut_fix/+merge/297355

wasn't working for me I found that there is an inconsistency and confusion apparently in the Reload shortcuts in this branch and in the current webbrowser.

For a given shortcut,

StandardKey.Refresh

as seen here:

http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~phablet-team/webbrowser-app/trunk/view/head:/src/app/webbrowser/Browser.qml#L2086

actually is platform dependant, and could refer to either F5, F5 AND Ctrl+r or Ctrl+r,

When running the webbrowser-app tests or the tests for the webapp-container branch above besides failing for me, they also report ambiguous events (ambiguous in the sense of http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qshortcutevent.html#QShortcutEvent) which means that there is an overloaded shortcut. And there is since StandardKey.Refresh is redundant with F5 on my setup (Ubuntu 16.04 with canadian keyboard),

Check for the Refresh keyboard shortcut there

I couldn’t observe the issue when running webbrowser-app on unity7, but I got hit by it on unity8 (reported by Bill as bug #1661690). I’ve verified that the proposed change fixes the issue indeed. Thanks!
