The title says kernel.org/doc/Documentation/vm/transhuge.txt for me in 58 with the STR in comment 0. Andrei, can your team still reproduce or does this look fixed to you too? In any case, not a new regression, and I don't think we would uplift anything to 57 here.
Hi Liz! I can still reproduce the issue mentioned in comment 0 using Firefox 58.0a1 (BuildId:20171009220104) on Windows 10 64bit, macOS 10.11.6 and Ubuntu 16.04 64bit.
Curiously, the incorrect tab title survives Ctrl+R, Ctrl+Shift+R, and even clicking the URL bar and hitting Enter. Conversely, there's no problem when you open the link in a new window. Still affects Firefox 61.
