Copying the URL of the current page seems to be an extremely common task, and I can't seem to find one in the official list. Are there any tweaks or add-ons?

    @happy_soil: worth pointing out that not working in IE is not uncommon for Firefox shortcuts ;-)

  • @Jonathan: what about on Macs with CTRL labels pasted onto the Command keys?

Try URLBarExt add-on. I use it all the time to copy the current URL or make it small using one of several URL shorteners.
