If you want Firefox to automatically select all the text upon clicking on the URL bar (instead of doing CTRL + A, all the time), follow the below procedure:
- In the address bar type "about-config" and press Enter
- In the Filter field search for "browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll"
- Double click on this entry in order to set the value to "True"
- Close the about: config window.
