I appreciate the ability to click on a single part of the URL and use the 
cursor to modify a small part of it, and I'm accustomed to the pretty 
standard behavior I find in other apps where a single click does just that 
and a double-click selects a word, a line, or some other delimited section of 
text.  I (for one) would be annoyed to see this behavior changed in Firefox.
