Using the new http hiding behavior, the following should occur:

A. Copy a url:
Rich text is "" and whole string is linked to that url
Plain text is simply "" 

B. Drag a url:
Rich text is "Page Title" and string is linked to url
Plain text is "" 

If users have modified the text in the omnibox, we use behavior A all the time (since we don't know 
the page title) and we should make sure that http is included if a URL navigation action would have 

For Queries:
C. Drag an unsubmitted query:
Rich text is "Query string" and string is linked to the search url
Plain text is simply the query string.

Seem reasonable?

Re: B: Copying and dragging the omnibox text itself should behave identically.  I 
don't know or care what happens when dragging the icon as long as it's the same on 
all OSes.

Re: further comments: We shouldn't do anything fancy when the user is editing the 
text in the box.  We don't today (and don't show page info on icon clicks, and don't 
allow the page icon to be dragged) and I think that is the sanest way to go.

See also  bug 41493  for a change I want to make to the "when to add http to the 
clipboard" heuristic.

Peter, cleaning up random old bugs over here, and I think that in a past discussion you indicated that this was not desirable (that copy should copy what you're looking at, not something else).  So this seems like WontFix?

Right now on mac copy or drag of the text works the same (url text linked to url), while drag of the location icon drags the page title linked to the page url.  The location-icon drag is only available if you're not editing the field.

I believe we've got the right behavior on Windows.  If Mac matches Windows, then I claim Mac is Done.

In that case, I believe we're on target.
