Copy the URL into the clipboard from it's source, say an email message.
Click ONCE on the URL field to activate the 'I' cursor.
Type CTRL+A to get to the beginning of the line.
Type CTRL+K to kill the current line.
Click the middle mouse button to paste the new URL.

Mark Andreesen uses emacs.
All line editing/text editing commands in Communicator use emacs bindings.
