Rather than reviving an old thread about nomenclature; remember;

You have two major types of fuses in Consumer Electronics regardless of the physical size. PERIOD.

"Slow blow, same as Time-delayed " more tolerant to current fluctuations. (ie startup circuit w/initial high current draw).

"Fast blow" same as a standard fuse.

T & F are the two common letters to indicate the difference---though not always used .

Single most important criteria is the Amperage rating.
Also, 120v vs 250V is important unless it is stamped as 250/120.
250V rated fuse can be used in a 120V circuit. Not the other way around.
You do not want to go below or above the stated AMP rating for the application.--You have a 5A standard fuse, just not sure of the package.

Physical size is another story as there are many packages available for the same ratings. GMA & AGC have been the most common in Consumer Electronics.
May want to consult a site before fuse shopping;
Here is an Example
