Poll window in Firefox 1.0.1 displays message counts instead of URL again

Rob Mueller – 10 March 2005

Firefox 1.0.1 introduced a "security" fix where popup windows without a "location" bar would display the windows URL as the first thing in the title of the window. This was annoying since normally we display "unread-message-count/total-message-count/last-update-time" in the title instead, which appears nicely in the taskbar in Windows.

We've now got a work around in place for Firefox 1.0.1 users who use the Poll window so that the message count is again displayed as the text in the taskbar.
