I would like to stop the default behavior of firefox displaying in the tab that contains my GMail how many unread GMail messages there are -- in other words to delete "(9)" from the attached photo and never have the count displayed -- if it could instead simply say "Inbox - xxx@gmail.com"

It's not. In fact, there's an option to disable this in GMail and I've tried numerous times to turn it off, restart firefox, etc., and it keeps showing.

Does that show if you used Chrome? With the limited view your showing it's hard to see what's happening. If you can show me but blackout personal info at the top so other can see if they can replicate what your seeing on their gmail when using firefox vs chrome.

This seems to be working for now. I can se firefox try to update/rename the tab for a split-second but it goes back to the generic name I gave it, so I'm not bothered by the "X new messages" thing anymore. Thanks.
