Steps to reproduce:

Went to, searched for "fluorescent sweatshirt".

Actual results:

Seemingly the entire page reloaded (complete with loading indicator in tab) from the home page to the results page, with the title displayed in the tab changed from " Online Shopping [etc]" to " fluorescent sweatshirt".

I realized from the results that a better query for what I wanted would be "high visibility sweatshirt", so I typed that into the in-page search box and hit enter. There was no loading indicator in the tab, and seemingly just the search results area reloaded with new results--but the title in the tab remained " fluorescent sweatshirt".

Expected results:

I checked the source, and the title of the page had been updated to " high visibility sweatshirt", and so I'd expect the tab to display that updated title.

The not-reloading-the-whole-page thing is a great time-saver, but page title seems like it should be on the list of bits to check for changes and be updated accordingly.

Because Firefox use the cache. Force cache to change the title. Not really an issue.
