Proper STR:
1) Set about:config > browser.newtab.url =
2) Open a new tab (Google homepage is displayed)
3) Run a search on Google
4) Click on the back button

Result: Tab title is New Tab instead of Google.

I can reproduce the problem with what reported in comment 0 actually, on today's nightly 31.0. Found this bug because another user reported this problem on our support forum.
Updating subject and affected system. Note that I'm seeing "New Tab" even if I'm using an Italian build.
