When a local directory is listed in mozilla, the window title is not updated. It displays the title of the previously accessed URL. Steps to reproduce: 1) launch mozilla. http://mozilla.org is loaded and the window title is "mozilla.org - Mozilla". 2) type in the URL of a local directory, for example file:/etc 3) the directory is listed. The window title still reads "mozilla.org - Mozilla". Expected result: Title should change to something like: "Directory listing of /etc - Mozilla". Platform: Build ID=2000012209 on Linux.
Looked for a DUP, but couldn't find one. That doesn't change the fact that this is so not my bug. Enjoy! -> waterson
don, someone on your team needs to figure this out. it's a webshell/browser/front-end thing.
Looks similar to bug #22174
Travis, is this our bug? Is it even a webshell issue?
Did this use to work? Basically titles have to originate from the viewer out. Is the directory content Viewer trying to set this somewhere? DocShell does not query the content viewer for it's title. The content viewers set their title up via the dom or directly calling docshell set title. Who owns the directory viewer?
