   I spend all day every day in Windows at work..so Ctrl-C/X/V is second nature
to me. If/when it doesn't work in Linux I get annoyed. The firefox problem is a
problem--what I do is click the address bar so the current address is
highlighted, then do the ctrl-C...ctrl-V. The "bizarre" behavior of terminals
bugs me no end.
