Request for IE-like behavior in URL bar - it would be a real timesaver. For example: when entering the text "yahoo" and pressing Ctrl+Enter, it would add the prefix "http://" and the suffix ".com"

This is available by default in 0.8.2 if the macros plugin is enabled. I think that should be enough. Proposing to close this bug.

A problem is though, that the clipboard contents get changed/lost with all macros that depend on the clipboard like this one. If you have copied an image to the clipboard you can't paste it afterwards (to Paint Shop Pro or whatever)! The macros plugin should have it's own clipboard-like functionality (and "setclipboard($oldclip);" should be fixed)... Another problem is that the url bar doesn't get updated after calling this macro.
And even if these problems can get fixed it would be *nice* - not necessarily needed - to see url bar functionality where the url bar is - within the main browser code.

Seems like getclipboard() and/or setclipboard() can only deal with text, resulting in loss of non-text clipboard after executing such macro.

Dunno for sure, but it's *dataloss* and that's never a good thing... Is there a corresponding bug in the bts for that? Haven't got the time to look right now, but 178 is the wrong bug to discuss about such an issue, sorry for that.

"Another problem is that the url bar doesn't get updated after calling this macro. "

That's fixed in beta. The clipboard non-text issue as ra pointed out needs a new bug filing if it isn't already.
