Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to any URL.
2. Enter (by typing or by pasting) a URL into the URL bar.
 This URL should preferably be such that it takes some time to resolve (or maybe to load), but it doesn't matter if it will be loaded successfully in the end.
3. Press Enter or click the arrow in the URL bar.


Expected results:
The URL bar should contain the URL entered, since Fennec is trying to load that new page.


Actual results:
* When you press Enter or click the arrow, the URL you have typed or pasted is replaced with the title of the page you've loaded in step 1.
* Unless the new URL is loaded immediately, you can see the old title stay there until it is finally replaced with the new title (so, I guess, until the new title is retrieved, not even just until the IP address is resolved)

Why this is wrong (at least from my newbie POV):
* The user gets confused about whether Fennec is processing the new URL.
* If some server is very slow, the user might forget that Fennec was loading something new, and think it is loading the old page.

Attached patch PatchSplinter Review
Text is now whatever was clicked or typed in until loading changes it.  Is this OK?
