Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a new tab. It should go to about:blank. 2. Change URL in tab to about: and load the page. 3. Change URL in tab to about:blank and load the page. Actual Results: Title bar changed after second step. Title bar did not change after third step. Expected Results: Title bar should change after the second step, and again after third step.
Interesting... the tab itself shows the correct title. The window does not... Also, swapping between tabs resets the window title correctly. This is such a small thing -- easily noticeable, but minor imho.
Severity: normal → minor
see the same with 2001101808, redhat. os->all...
You also get similar behaviour if you open a new tab, enter a URL, e.g hp.com, let it load, then change the URL to about:blank As noted, the tab shows the correct title, and swapping tabs resets it. Reproduced on Windows 2000, Redhat Linux 7.1(ish), build 2001102414
Happens with images too (view image), so I can't see their dimentions. Extremely annoying during development.

Summary: Empty <title></title> does not update title in tabbed browsing → Empty or no <title> or image does not update title in tabbed browsing

This has NOTHING to do with tabed browsing. In fact, it was broken before tabs were even checked in. Trying XP Apps. Easier, much mre visable test case is 'view image' in the image context menu. Title should update eaither to null, or preferably, the filename or something similarly useful. I think NS4 used the complete URL? plain/text documents could use the filename there as well, not only for showing on the window name, but for bookmarking, tab title ("(Untitled)" is freaking annoying), under the tasks menu, etc. Actually, bookmarks already seem to remake the title, under the tasks menu, it still shows the incorrect (previous) title.

Attachment #61945 - Flags: review+
Still occuring in build from 2002010703. Nothing to do with tabs. When a page doesn't have a title it retains the title from the previous page and does not update the window.
Bug 105319 just fixed one specific case there, for xml documents with no <xhtml:title>. I just posted a note there pointing here and saying a higher level fix might be in order so the window title reset isn't cloned in 10 differant places.
