"If I turn off the GO button, then I right-click/copy a URL from a text page, then right-click/paste that URL into the URL bar, how do I also use the mouse to GO to that page? Do I really have to reach for my keyboard if I turn off the GO button?"

If you've got the Tab Bar visible you could drag the contents of the Location Bar to a tab (or a blank area of the Tab Bar if you want a new tab). In fact, you can drag a plain text URL from another application onto a tab or the Tab Bar and have it load this way (no need for copy 'n' paste).

"And why do I have to click the GO button twice for it to work?"

There's a bug on that somewhere. It only occurs when the autocomplete drop-down is visible (it acts like a window in front of the current Navigator window).
