How to get the same behavior of the URL address bar on Linux as on Firefox for Windows. I mean the whole URL gets selected by first click and unselected with cursor position where second click was made. Is there any way to do that?

  • URL is selected whole with double click. You may use Ctrl+L

Yes, you can do that. Write in the address bar about:config and press enter. Accept the warning. Then in the search bar you will now see above your settings type click - that will open click related settings. Choose browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll and set it's value to true. From now the new tabs windows you open will show this behaviour you want.

  • Awesome! Thanks, that's exactly the setting I was hoping for! Jun 8, 2017 at 9:26
