Display page title in tooltip when hovering over a tab thumbnail in Tab
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100813 Minefield/4.0b4pre Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; rv:2.0b4pre) Gecko/20100813 Minefield/4.0b4pre Currently in TabView there is no way to read the complete page title for a tab. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open a tab with a site with a long name (like https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=585689 ) 2.Go to TabView 3.Hover over the tab Actual Results: No tooltip appears Expected Results: A tooltip containing the full page title
This would be incredibly helpful. Groups with many tabs truncate the page titles enough to occlude their content.
This shouldn't be hard. I'd take a stab at it if I weren't busy with blockers, but I want this.

FWIW, I tried setting the title attribute on the <canvas>, but it doesn't work. It *should* since that works in normal HTML, but perhaps there's some conflicting CSS?
Not a blocker, but potentially a good first bug! cc'ing some people to see if comment 4 is the right approach.
