Comment(by Eben):

 The best solution I see here is to fix #3712, which calls for a "paste"
 action directly on the clippings within the Frame.  Since it's impossible
 to focus the location field while also navigating to the edit toolbar,
 it's only possible to paste via the standard shortcut or via the action on
 the clipping itself (or drag).

 Regarding the linebreak, I'd suspect that it was accidentally copied from
 the Terminal.  Ultimately, Browse should be ignoring all but the first
 line of text in a paste into the location bar, a URI can only be one line.
 I'd actually expect the entry to handle this on it's own if it was defined
 to be a single line entry, but perhaps that's not the case.
