It's kinda out of the ropic but I was wondering can a web site address be saved automatically in the address bar without being actually typed in there?

I may be misunderstanding what it is that you mean or want.

If you are talking about saving it for future use then that is what favorites\bookmarks are for. If not then I believe sites visited are saved in the browser history even if they were visited by clicking on a link.

I have always had my history disabled, nothing is saved so I`m not sure.

I know that it is saved in the history but my question is can something like a pop up web site save itself in the address bar?

Do you mean something like a pop-up window?

If it is generated by some form of malware then I would say it is possible. But I do`t ever recall seeing it happen.

Allowing pop ups and saving them is a scary thing. I need help understanding this idea. IMHO this would be one the best ways to get infected with some very bad things.
