Is that Deer Park in the screenshot or an unofficial build?

I've noticed this behavior for a very long time, I believe since before firefox
1.0 (though I am not entirely sure).

An easy work around is selecting a different tab, since firefox seems to always
load the title of a tab when you select it.

This happens to me every time I close a tab (I usually use the mouse wheel, but
occasionally use ctrl+F4 and the button).

I deal with MANY tabs OFTEN (I read many webcomics that I of course open all at
once in tabs) so this one is fairly obvious, but it didn't occur to me to report
it 'till tonight because it really is a fairly minor thing.

I too have witnessed this bug ever since I've started using Firefox. I'm using
the current update 1.0.6. However, the title bar doesn't refresh when a new tab
is selected. However, in opening a new Firefox window without closing the
problematic one, there is no problem, at least initially. This suggests that the
problem may be triggered somehow, but I can's see where or how.

I also have experienced this bug (using 1.5 Beta).
The last loaded tab's title remains in the title bar, and taskbar button until
another page is refreshed, toggling which tab is active makes no difference.

I'm experiencing this bug also, with the latest version of Firefox (1.0.7) in
Linux. I'm glad I searched for it here. :) It seems to happen on specially coded
CSS/JS pages, as I only noticed it when visiting the link below... it happens
with no other sites I've seen (so far). I get your exact symptoms... the Title
bar keeps the title of that page even when I switch the tab, close out of it, or
minimize Firefox.
