Currently, a single click in the location bar (when the focus was somewhere else) selects the complete URL instead of just placing the caret. While this is the default behavior on Windows, it's completely unexpected on the Mac.

The Mac standard is: A single click places the caret, a double click selects the word around the click, and a triple click selects the entire line.
