Description

17 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2) Gecko/20010628
BuildID:    2001062815

When I start typing in the address bar, Mozilla displays a number of matching
URLs. These URLs have the page's title displayed next to them *in italics*. 

The font used for the URL (on Win32) is MS Sans Serif, not a true type font. The
italics look horrible and make reading the title difficult (view screenshot at
supplied URL).

In addition, I don't see why the titles need to be emphasised in 
any way. I would simply put them in brackets, e.g.

http://slashdot.org/         (Slashdot, News for Nerds)

(Note I have ranked this as "Minor" rather than "Trivial", as it does reduce
Mozilla's usability)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start typing the URL of a site in your history in the address bar.
2. When Mozilla displays a list of matches, note that the titles of the matches
URLs are displayed in italics.

Actual Results:  Site/page title displayed in italics.

Expected Results:  Title should be displayed in normal font, no need for
emphasis. If emphasis is required, bold rather than italic should be used.

This only occurs in the Classic theme, so I'm moving this to the Themes component.

I don't think the page titles need to appear in brackets. They could just appear
a little darker, as they do in the Modern theme.

When I said the page titles could appear a little darker, I meant to say that
they should appear a little lighter.

Adding "classic" keyword and reassigning to default owner and QA for Themes.

Updating the summary a bit. I know we are using keyword classic, but this way
the bug can be easy to understand while doing queries

This is a problem on Mac Classic too. --> All/All.

I don't think there's any good reason that the titles should be shown any 
differently from the URLs. Just being in a different column makes it obvious 
enough what they are.
