I think "Copy Link Location" should be added to the bookmark item context menu. At least with my usage, this is the most common thing I right-click a bookmark for. Presently, you either have to load the bookmark, then copy the text in the URL bar, or open the (slow to load) properties dialog, select the text inside, copy it to the clipboard, and then close the dialog. One-click access in the context menu would be very helpful when I'm sharing URLs via IRC/IM. Setting to UNCO. If someone agrees they can NEW it.
"Copy" works for me in FF 0.8
Perhaps it's an issue of not making it to the X primary selection than, if "Copy" is meant to be more than intra-application CCP. To clarify, copying the link should then allow you to middle-click in an X application, like Xterm, to paste the URL.
this one is odd, I can have right-click paste work, but it doesn't let me do middlemouse pasting, that retains something different.

I thought this used to be in Firefox, though, and was removed when the RSS stuff was added. I miss it too..
According to http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Standards_2fClipboardsWiki , explicity copying a item should copy it to the CLIPBOARD and not PRIMARY, and middle mouse paste should always paste the PRIMARY, not the CLIPBOARD. So this is INVALID. That's for Linux; on Windows you can just use Copy to copy the item to the clipboard.
