Need to rename tabs

Several of my tabs start with the long, identical names. I cannot see the end of the http:// address to know the correct tab. How can I abbreviate a tab's name so I can see unique parts of the site name?

Hi LoveGoldRiver, the text on the tab is taken from the <title> in the page's HTML code. If there is no <title> then Firefox uses the page's URL.

You may be able to find an add-on that edits the page title in one way or another. I don't know how customizable it would be. Can you find anything promising on the Add-ons site?

If not, it may be possible to modify the title with a user script, which is a short script you apply to pages using an extension like Tampermonkey, Violentmonkey, or Greasemonkey. The advantage is that you can customize it yourself if you know a little JavaScript coding, or get one written for you with less effort than an extension.

Let us know what you find.
