You are hitting a userinterface limitation of most GUI browsers ;-) (you
can't press reload on a file the browser insists on saving).

Furtunately there is several ways to do things ;-)

1. Use some command line tool (for example client that is delivered with
Squid) to do a "reload" (Pragma: no-cache) request for the object
2. Refresh it using the cachemgr interface
3. Use lynx
4. Construct a manual query
   telnet 3128
   GET HTTP/1.0
   Pramga: no-cache
   <empty line>
   and then fetch the file.
