Description

When you drag the globe/lock icon next to the URL in the address bar onto the bookmarks toolbar it uses the actual URL instead of page title.

Same thing happens with bookmarks menu.

I was able to reproduce this problem with both Tor Browser 4.5.3 and 5.0a3 on a Mac OS 10.8.5 system. Dragging the fav icon from the tab to the Bookmarks Toolbar does result in the page title being used.

And this works on a normal Firefox, right?

Yes. I just tested in 38.1 ESR and in a 40.0 beta. As another experiment, I tried disabling Torbutton in TB 5.0a3 and found that this bug disappeared: the page title was transferred to the Bookmarks Toolbar. I did notice that the fav icon was missing, but that also seems to be the case if I use Cmd+D or other methods to create the bookmark.

Still have this issue in TorBrowser 7.5.4 with TorButton 1.9.8.6

Still present in TB v8.5.4.
Can I ask why this issue has remained unaddressed for 4 years?
Bookmarks aren't very useful without titles.

I agree. The reason is that we haven't found time working on this bug. :( But if you can, please do! We'd love to review a patch and get this fixed.
