Aaron, I've made the changes to include the title/url as part of the tile here.

History tiles display the domain while directory + suggested tiles have the ability to provide a custom title. Just confirming this is what we wanted and that the suggested tile's text 'suggested for <xyz> visitors' should no longer be selectable.

Attached image overlay.png (obsolete) —
I specifically wanted to ask about the overlay as seen here. Is the 'suggested' tag meant to be clickable? Or is it the entire title bar on the tile that is now clickable?

Should the overlay be covering the title bar as it is in this screenshot? or be above it?

Clicking the "suggested" label will launch the black overlay – as it currently exists – on top of the screenshot. The overlay should NOT cover the title bar.

Clicking anywhere else in the title bar would launch a New Tab with the detestation page loaded.
Also, you are correct in Comment #1 regarding tile titles... main-level domain only for History ( and client suggested tiles, or a custom title for Mozilla Directory Tiles.

`this.title || this.url` at the end shouldn't be necessary, since you changed the title getter to return the same thing, right?  Only this.title should be OK.

And could you please write this like:

let title = enhanced && enhanced.title ? enhanced.title :
   == "history" ? :
