Actually there is (when available) an even easier method:-
5) Click on the "Up" button.
Konqueror is the only browser that I know for sure has this, but there may
well be other browsers that do. Browsers that, like Konqueror, are
designed to work both as web and file-system browser are more likely to
have such a facility.
With Konqueror I have on occasion truncated a URI by accidently hitting the
up-button. Being next to the back-button, and the same colour it is very
easy to do.
