Is there some Firefox plugin that I can use to change the text on the tab?

TabRenamizer does exactly what you want:

  • Random rename tabs: change the titles of your tabs to random ones with a simple click. Nobody will suspect what pages are you reading...
  • Select a new title for a tab, writing it or replacing a substring of the original title into another text.
  • URL and domain automatic rename: rename all tabs with a certain URL or domain with the title you want, automatically.
  • Bookmark integration: give the pages the same title you have in your bookmarks.

There is something entierly distrubing with your example. :-) – Chris Dec 18 '09 at 16:20

You can download Firebug and expand the <head> tag, find <title> and edit that.

I just tested on this site, and it works...

Definitely a very creative solution to it! I like it! – Simon Sheehan Jun 18 '11 at 23:43

If you wanted it done automatically, you could change the <title> as Will says, but using a Greasemonkey script.
