Firefox URL Bar

This feature is already there. If you click on the little icon next to
the URL, inside the address bar (the one you can drag and drop to
create a link to the page), it selects the entire URL. In Firefox 1.5,
at least.

Meanwhile, I do often need to precision select parts of URLs to edit
them directly, or copy them out. I would be very annoyed if the entire
address was selected no matter where I clicked.


Seen in the release notes for ACPI-support 0.34:

'The "I do not wish to discuss it" release
  * Add workaround for prodding fans back into life on resume
  * Add sick evil code for doing sick evil things to sick evil
