STR: 1. Load http://www.mozilla.org/about/policies/privacy-policy.html?a=b 2. Ctrl-L to focus URLbar, rightarrow to un-highlight & leave cursor @ end 3. Backspace 4x, to remove "?a=b" suffix. (or make some other tiny edit) 4. Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C to copy the resulting URL 5.

However, for small edits, it'd be great if we could make this work...
