    I cannot figure out how to copy the url of the page i'm viewing. i can share it and copy it that way but no way to just copy it. Anyone know how to do this or if it's not possible? Thanks.

    I just tried and couldn't do it either. The furthest I got was to click on more, and then "select text", but that only allowed me to select text on the page itself, and not the URL text.

    I suppose someone should send them a suggestion. Perhaps this could be a Menu item and a gesture item; "Copy URL".

    Until then, here's what I do. It's fairly simple and painless. Using either the Menu button or a gesture, I "Add a bookmark". The Bookmark window pops up so I long-press on the location box and tap "Copy all". Then I just tap "Cancel" and the URL is ready to be pasted wherever I need to paste it.

    Hope this helps...

    When you are on the page that you want to copy the address from go to Menu > Start Page and then long press on the url area at the top and you can pick "Copy all."

    ..and another one! Too bad you can't copy URL the same way you can with the stock browser.
