    My workflow entails repetitive tasks that would be so much easier if I could set Leopard's (Safari's) default double-click functionality to select ALL text within the Google search box instead of having to use a triple-click. Does anyone know how to make this change to Leopard/Safari?

    Thank you!

    Don't have a direct solution, but my techniques for selecting all text:
    1. Hold click at start of text field and drag down
    2. Hold click at end of text field and drag up
    3. Click in text field and do a cmd+a to select all, I mean you're likely going to be using the keyboard anyways.
    These tend to be just as easy as double clicking.

    I would also like a single click to select all in Safari. You can click on the icon to the left to single click select everything though.

    Try pressing command+L to select the address bar, then tab once to the search field. Presto, selected without using the mouse at all. Alternatively, you could just use Keywurl.
