Currently in TabView there is no way to read the complete page title for a tab.
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
No tooltip appears
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.
Punting to future. If we see a patch before beta 11, we could consider it.
I have also taken a look at this bug. I can confirm that setting the 'title' attribute does not work.
Then I looked at the stylesheets, but I don't think the hover pseudo-classes actually does anything bad.
Talking about that on IRC, a fellow developer came out with an idea :
< KWierso> there's gotta be something eating the tooltip, or maybe it being somewhat in-between XUL and HTML makes it not care about the 'title' attribute?
Does this suddenly enlighten anyone ?
