hootlet - have it ignore bowser names from auto fill
When you open Hoolet for page in Firefox for example. It adds "- Mozilla Firefox" to post. Have it ignore common browser names from default post.
Currently, the Hootlet grabs text from a website’s tag. It’s come to our attention that some installations of Firefox, particularly in Windows, insert the browser name there. We’ll look at ways to filter that out.

I simply created a bookmark with the following in it to replace the add-on.
This is how you add it to IE10 and it works for Firefox. No more "- Mozilla Firefox".
This has been a pet peeve of mine for awhile now. Any progress on this?
Any reponse from Hootsuite?
Almost three years later and this problem still exists?
Why hootlet doesn't catch the title from the html tag <title>?
There is a workaround in Firefox with this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/customize_titlebar_v2/
It works with the last version of Firefox.
This problem is in Firefox on Linux too.

It looks like the prior solution is not longer available "Titlebar Tweaks Plus 10.03.07 Non disponibile per Firefox 14.0.1". It´s a pity because I´m a long time user of Hootsuit especially because of the schedule function. However, when I´m surfing the web what I want is sharing right away not editing the text. Regards
Yes, it works. Just download and install this addon: https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/73454/ then go to "Tools" menu at the top of the screen then click "Add-ons". Click "Titlebar Tweaks Plus" and "Options". Now erase everything in the text field, then click "Variables" and choos "Webpage Title $[Title]" and finally click Apply.

Any news on this? It's very annoying!

This is a major annoyance to me and should be simple to fix. THere are only so many browser, just parse it out. Why hasn't this be fixed yet??
FF on win xp
It happens the same to me, but I experience the problem only when using Ubuntu: on Windows it's OK.
