FF57/linux.  Exactly what good is pinning a tab if the TITLE of the tab

I would not know. Never used pinned tabs.

When testing I see a tooltip.

The tooltip when you hover the mouse over the pinned tab isn't working
for you?

That works if I hover over the icon -- a tiny target for people whose
feedback loops for mousing don't work quite as well as they should.  The
whole idea seems stupid.  What could possibly be the point?  "Lock tab"
(was that a tab mix plus thing or a native FF thing?) was perfect.  If I
remember to middle-click the thing I want to open in a new tab without
re-using the old tab it works the same way, but it's still stupid to
force me to retrain what might be decades of reflexes in order to...
uh... er...

I use Pin Tab for pages I don't goto often but want them handy when I
do. They're nice since they don't take much space but I only use it for
5 or less pages which ends up only taking less than two normal tab spaces.

That's what I used the vertical bookmark bar on the left for, gradually moving things to the top. They ruined that too :-(

I use 'lock tab' for stuff like the Drudge Report, AP news, other stuff where I want to open a lot of tabs and then read them all at once. I do that a LOT.

I guess that's not all that convenient to do in Android, and since everything seems to be phone-centric now there's no need to lock anything. Fsck.
