Someone pointed out a nifty trick to me in Linux for Mozilla:

Highlight (copy) a url from another application, even on another virtual desktop. Switch to Moz, middle click (paste) anywhere and Mozilla will automagically go to that URL. This saves having to clear the location bar, which I usually stupidly clear by, you guessed it, highlighting and erasing, which then loses the original link that I wanted to paste, so I have to go back and rehighlight, etc. etc.

Phoenix does not do this, and after discovering the feature, I must have it. :) I've queried Bugzilla and haven't found anything yet, so I'd like to get some feedback on this before I open a bug.
