I have been reading this thread and have couple of opinions & observations
* The single click should select the entire URL.
* This is more efficient, as it allows a single click+typing to replace
the url and single click+drag to select portion of the URL (and typing
to edit the selected portion), hence only one click is needed each time.
*With firefox1.5 the single click select all does not overwrite the 2nd
clipboard content (inorder to overwrite, one must double click the URL).
I have not read the entire thread as it seemed to have delved into some
minor name calling etc. Please present any arguments against why you
dont think a single click should focus the entire URL, without the name
