Yes, but why not just single-click on the address bar? It's a click
less than right clicking, and then going to select all. A click saved
for something your doing ALL the time is worth it. This is the behavior
of the Windows version of firefox, and IE.

I was speaking of the GNOME clipboard (Copy/Paste/Cut).

That's not what I'm talking about. Most of the time you want to direct
your browser to a diffrent page, and a single click will select all, so
you can easily delete it, or copy it (gnome clipboard).
