You're probably better off using browser extensions for this. I use Vimperator because I like programming lisp in vim because I'm stupid like that, and it's literally just a case of pressing y to yank the URL into the clipboard. I'm sure there are greasemonkey scripts or extensions that do the same thing with a lot less effort than trying to get the window manager to do it

My stumpwm configure:
My emacs configure:

Could you share your extension?
