    I just reluctantly upgraded to Safari 4.0.3 on Leopard after being on the Beta since it was released. I didn't want to go because I loved the "tabs on top," but I figured I will have to upgrade in Snow Leopard anyways, so I went ahead with the update.

    Here's the thing that annoys me: With the update, I can's type something in the address bar, press ⌘-Return, then type another address. The address bar deselects when I press ⌘-Return. In the Beta, I could select the address bar, type an address, press ⌘-Return and the address bar would remain selected, with the entire address selected, allowing me to type another address immediately.

    Was this some kind of setting I had? Has anyone else noticed this?

    I know it is no big deal to have to double-click the address bar or single-click and press ⌘-A, but it sure was convenient to not have to before!

    Well I don’t think you can change that, but I can offer you one tip: cmd-L moves the focus to the address bar and highlights the whole thing. So after you press cmd-return, just press L before you release cmd.

    How do you type a cmd symbol, btw?

    Thank you, that will do the trick for me!

    I am finding the more I use the computer, the more I use the keyboard instead of the mouse.

    For the ⌘: Long Method: System Preferences/International/Input Menu
    Check the box at the bottom to display the input menu in the menu bar.
    Click on the Flag->Show Character Palette->Technical Symbols->⌘

    I am sure there is some keyboard shortcut, but I don't know it!

    Ah, I was hoping there was some simple way. You can also get it by going to Edit > Special Characters… (or ⌥⌘T) and searching for “place of interest sign”. I went through the entire keyboard holding ⌥ and ⇧⌥, but didn’t get it (ok, so now I’m just having too much fun with the special characters…) so I don’t think there’s a keyboard shortcut.
