Actual results:

I can use a content script for this but it will not work on tabs that have restricted pages (addons.mozilla.org, about: pages etc.)


Expected results:

tabs.update(tabId, {title: "New Title"}); // Should work.

Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, the suggested API does not meet the criteria of the WebExtensions API Policy (https://wiki.mozilla.org/WebExtensions/policy). In particular:

II. Security and Privacy - Restricted pages are restricted to protect user privacy and security. Adding an API to update the title would still not be permitted on restricted pages.

VI. Alternatives - This can already be accomplished via a content script, as the original submission points out.
