BuildID: 2001091303 When selecting part of a URI in the address bar, then right-clicking, the entire URI is selected. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Highlight part of a current URI in the address bar. 2. Right click to get the Copy/Paste/Delete dialog. 3. Entire URI is then selected. Expected Results: The same part that was highlighted should have stayed selected, to allow for Copying/Pasting/Deletion. This is easily worked around via keyboard commands, but sometimes when viewing an article form a new site, I like to then go to the top-level of the site and see what the site is all about. I usually just hightlight everyting after "http://foo.tld", right-click and delete, then hit "Go" - more convenient than reaching for the keyboard at times.
I don't know if this is by design or a bug, but confirming that it happens. Builg 2001091508, Win98.

Annoying as hell when you want to use the context menu to delete part of the URL.
I think this is related, and gets to the heart of the matter. It is really hard to edit a URL in the URL bar. Almost always, you want ot change the end of a URL. But clicking in the middle of a URL highlights it to the start instead of to the end! There seems to be no easy way to highlight to the end. Dragging it from the clicl location leaves the start selected.
I saw this in 0.9.5 until I added the line user_pref("browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll", false) to my prefs.js. Now when I right click the URL bar, it doesnt select everything anymore.
Joe was dying to have these bugs. Who am I to say no?
