When clicking on a displayed URL in the URL-bar, the various click 'sequences' don't obey the expected settings. This is how things should work (I believe!): single-click = place the cursor at the location of the mouse-pointer, when clicked. double-click = highlight the entire word (bounded by the full-stops ".") at the location of the mouse-pointer. triple-click = highlight the entire contenst of the URL-bar I have the following settings in about:config browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll = false browser.urlbar.clickAtEndSelects = false browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll = false I've tried various combinations of TRUE and FALSE for the above settings and cannot get it to work as expected. In a similar FF 14.0.1 install on a Windows XP system, the various clicks in the URL bar behave as expected (above).
What's layout.word_select.stop_at_punctuation set to?
That seems to have fixed it. In the Linux install, that parameter was set to FALSE, in the Windows XP install it was TRUE. Now it behaves as expected. Pity it was so hard to locate a solution to this niggle elsewhere (despite Googling like crazy!). Cheers, Mike.
