Selection of the entire URL with 1 click Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I'd like that the address field in the toolbar behaves similar to IE:

1) The 1st click on the URL selects the entire URL and allows instant typing of another URL.
The 2nd click does the same as the 1st actually does.


2) Option-click in the URL selects the entire URL and allows instant typing of another URL.
Clicking without opt-key does the same as it actually does.
If you click on the favicon, the entire url is highlighted--we prefer this solution to the issue than changing the way that a text field normally works. You will note that Safari does the same.
Thanks!! That's an excellent solution and I've learned it now :rolleyes: don't know all the features of OW, sorry ;)

Since 2002 or 2003 I didn't use Safari but OW:)
Always glad when it is so easy to make a customer happy!
Clicking the favicon is great trick. But I don't expect I'll use it much.

When I select the entire URL, my next action is Command-C, Command-V or typing a domain name. Since my hands are already headed to the keyboard, I start by selecting the current URL with Command-L.
I prefer the shortcuts, too, and Cmd-L is even better indeed. In my office I have to use Windows - no chance for Mac - that's why I'm usually clicking the URL.
There aren't a whole lot of changes that I would be in complete opposition of, but this would be one of them. Personally, I can't, even a tiny bit, stand how IE does it. Drives me nuts.

I like the way other Mac apps handle this and I like the fact that (most) all are the same.

single click=insert
double click=select word
triple click=select line
