Created attachment 184464 [details] image of the bug Attached screenshot showing the bug. Title bar displays different title from the currently focused tab.
Is that Deer Park in the screenshot or an unofficial build?
I also experienced this bug, though I am using Firefox 1.0.4.(Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050511 Firefox/1.0.4) I will add a screenshot. I used the same method as the submitter, however the pages I experienced this with are: http://forums.fark.com/cgi/fark/comments.pl?IDLink=1442081 and then http://apple.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/06/02/1523238&from=rss Unfortunately, I can't reproduce this currently, but I will update if I can.
I experience this behavior with the lastest Deer Park. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8b2) Gecko/20050603 Firefox/1.0+
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.
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050908 Firefox/1.4 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.
