Re: Highlighted in X, is there a buffer ?

It's kind of ugly, but what I do is click at the very front of the URL
I'm replacing, then middle click to paste, then move hand to keyboard
and Shift-End, Delete, Enter, move hand back to mouse if needed. Your
method seems better if you're going back to the mouse anyway; mine seems
better if you plan to stay at the keyboard. But you're right, a better
method would be nice.

Have a read at what a horrible nightmare cut&paste is under X.
I can't find any thing horrible in this text.
I actually like two buffers. Not that it always works.
Although what I don't like is
- double-click a URL in some text in xterm
- move to mozilla
- click in the Location box
- move hand keyboard to type ^U to clear
- move hand back
- middle click to paste
I'm sure someone will point out an easier way.
At least in Opera I can right click and select "Clear" to keep from moving
my hand too and from the keyboard.
