Ugh, I am tired of highlighting things in the browser and not having the highlighted material go instantly to the buffer, as it would from the terminal. How can I make the primary buffer work as well in a browser for highlighting?

To the best of my knowledge it does; just middle click to paste (cntrl-v only puts what you last cntrl-c'd).

EDIT: This was verified in Chromium under KDE.

Which browser? In Firefox you need clipboard.autocopy=true (should be the default). But I know from experience that works maybe 50% of the time...

Well, I notice the primary buffer works on the browser for everything but the URL window...which is what I copy and paste the most. It seems for the URL window, I have to click on to highlight, and then click out.
