Select all in address bar of firefox (Ubuntu, Linux Mint) with a single click

Too many things to modify after installing ubuntu or linux mint. One of the annoying thing is Clicking the address bar on Firefox (provided with Ubuntu, linux mint) doesn’t select the whole text in it. Its a very small problem. But its so annoying that, to select the whole address or to type a new one, i have to drag the mouse all the way from start to the end. Well the solution is just here.

1. On the address bar, type
about:config
2. Click “I will be careful, I promise”.
3. On the filter bar, type
browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll
4. Double click on it to change the value to True.

And its done. If needed, restart firefox.
