Since updating to 3.0.7, for many sites tab titles will display "Loading…" forever, after page is done loading. When the tab is focused however, the window title bar displays text just fine (i.e., it shows what the tab title should be showing). 

Doing a full page reload (F5/Cmd+R) doesn't fix. In Gmail, hitting the page's own "Refresh" link does force the tab title to display correctly.

Happens 100% of the time on Google services pages (gmail, calendar, docs) but also on more "static" pages such as, and this page (!

Reproducible: Always

Occurs in themes: Defualt 3.0.7, GrApple Yummy (graphite) 1.0.4

Using add-on Tab Mix Plus
I could not reproduce this using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv: Gecko/2009021910 Firefox/3.0.7 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729).

Perhaps you should try disabling any add-ons (especially Tab Mix Plus) and trying again?
