    3 clicks:
    1: focus on the address bar
    2: highlight a word
    3: highlight the entire URL

    What do you mean? I just wonder if that's the way it is,but when I click anywhere in the bar on google chrome it gets highlighted right away,I don't have to click several times like in safari,I wonder if that's the way safari is or is there something I'm doing wrong,any output is appreciated:)

    That's the way it works in Safari. Google chrome behaves differently. Personally, I find it much easier just to hit CMD-L on the keyboard and it automatically highlights the URL even when the address bar isn't focused.

    If you click once on the favicon in the address field the entire url is highlighted.

    Perhaps derived from "favorites" and "icon" = favicon? It's the little doodad in the URL box next to the, um, URL itself. You can also grab it and drag it to other applications and it will morph into the URL. Thus, you don't have to highlight the whole thing and do Copy.

    I don't think you are clicking in the right place.

    Favicon
