Table: favorits : id, url, title, f_id;//f_id = users.id
      users:   id, password

Case "tools":
           print("<h3>Url Selected</h3>\n");             
                   $ar = $_POST['uselect'];
/*I want to input `url` and `title` in my database, I am only passing `url` via    select [] and accesing it,
# but how do I passs `title` also through same select without using another drop down menu.
#I know you can AGAIN look in to database for` title`, but that is not what I want, since I already have  `title` in my  $result2 array, and on $a and on $d (please look below)*/

      $result = @mysql_query(" SELECT url,title FROM favorites where favorites.id ='$k'");//User id
          if (!$result) {
            exit('<p>Error performing query: ' . mysql_error() . '</p>');
      while ($row = mysql_fetch_array($result)) {
           $result1 = array_merge((array)$result1, (array)($row['url']) );
           $result2 = array_merge((array)$result2, (array)($row['title']) );

      $a = array_combine($result2,$result1); ///////// ARRAY $a
      $d = array_map("map_Spanish", $result2 , $result1);// ///////// ARRAY $d

      $num = mysql_numrows($result);
         print("<form action=\"webtools.php?section=tools\" method=\"post\"> ");
         $i = 0;
         print( "<SELECT name=\"uselect[]\" SIZE=\"1\">");
                  foreach($a as $key=>$val) {
                        echo "<OPTION VALUE=\"".$val."\">". $key ."</OPTION>\n";            
           print( "</SELECT>");
         echo " <br> <br>";
         $num = $num -1;
      print("<input type=\"submit\">\n");

you could concatenate the two using some separator which won't occur in either one, such as | or :, and then use explode() to break it back into pieces.
