Howto: Single click to highlight the address bar in Firefox

August 5, 2006 at 9:40 am | Posted in tips and tricks, xubuntu | 3 Comments

This is a small, but important, tip for Firefox.

1) Open Firefox. In the address bar, type about:config.

2) In the filter bar, type click.

3) The setting you are looking for is browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll. Right click, and click Toggle.

4) Restart Firefox. Now only one click is required to highlight the address bar in Firefox! (Before, you had to double-click.)
