Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I often type long URLs into Firefox's location/address bar (usually a URL with many GET parameters).

Since I must scroll left and right in the location bar to see the entire URL, it's hard to edit.

What plugin lets me edit the address/location in an external editor?

Or at least edit the GET parameters I'm sending and then re-send the request?

I realize I could use "firefox -remote" from the command-line, but that seems ugly.
