User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:14.0) Gecko/20120412 Firefox/14.0a1 Build ID: 20120412030726 Steps to reproduce: Opera for Android does this. It's convenient and useful, I'm not really sure why Fennec opts to only share the URL.
I'm not able to reproduce what you are seeing. The title of the webpage is in the subject when you send off an email. Opera doesn't show the title in twitter; neither do we since there's limited space. Can you be more specific in where you are seeing the issue please?
You're right, Tweetdeck, Tweakdeck and Twitter are shared without page title, while Whatsapp shares the page title.
Pocket also doesn't get the page title. But it doesn't when sharing a page from the Android 4.2 "Internet" browser, either. As we found in Bug 799615, there are a bunch of different ways to send pages, some of which work better than others. I would like to explore this further at some point, because I think we might be able to make this work. So if nobody minds, I'm going to reopen this and do some investigation.
Created attachment 710075 [details] [diff] [review] Part 0: rewrite openUriExternal. v1 Mark, please review or dispatch appropriately! This part 0 rewrites openUriExternal to: * Use early returns * Eliminate C++-style aFoo naming * Separate intent creation from activity launching * Use more efficient/library code for things like query parsing * Improve readability and style * Add Javadocs and comments It builds; tomorrow I will test it.
Created attachment 710077 [details] [diff] [review] Part 1: add title. v1 On top of that refactoring, the one-line change. Yes, it's a one-line change, but now we can read the function and understand what it's doing ;) Again, I will test this tomorrow.
