Ok, I know I’ve whinged about Copy & Paste before. It just seems to have got worse. Maybe I am becoming more inept.

Though I have a dream. A dream whereby I can copy and paste the URL bar of my Firefox with:

  1. CTRL+L
  2. CTRL+C
  3. Alt+1 (switch to uxterm)
  4. Middle click into uxterm or shift+insert on keyboard

Instead of the nightmare right now:

  1. CTRL+L
  2. CTRL+C
  3. Alt+1 (switch to uxterm)
  4. Middle click into uxterm
  5. Wrong text! (if you are using vim and pasting a lot of text, hilarious consequences ensue)
  6. Undo damage
  7. Alt+2 (switch to firefox)
  8. Find correct tab
  9. CTRL+L
  10. Double click with LMB (i hate having to use the mouse here)
  11. Pray
  12. Double click with LMB again just to be sure
  13. Alt+1 (switch to uxterm)
  14. Middle click into uxterm
