I always visit one website which I don't want others to see the title of.

I want that whenever I open that site my title of that site changes to something else or hide.

There is a addonon in Firefox which can hide the title of window, but I have to manually click on hide title.

Is there something which can do it automatically for a particular website?

    sounds to me like something is showing up in your history that you don't want mom and pop to find ;) Jun 25 '10 at 0:46
  • If you just change the title shown in your history, you mom and pop can still search the names of URLs of pages and pictures, browse through the cache, etc… Jun 25 '10 at 1:09
  • no no its not history , suppose i have 5 tabs open and one tabs title shows some Adult title , when someone is looking at all tabs title i want to change that title not in history but when i am viewing live

Use Greasemonkey.

Write a script that changes the page title.

  • Or use Private Browsing mode; but you have to activate it manually, every time, and it doesn't keep track of your history, so visited links are not shown as such. Jun 25 '10 at 1:07
  • @MarcelKorpel in private browsing, the window title is still the tab title and thus visible in the taskbar

  • @Xerus Fair enough, but look at the first comment about the OP's possible intention. Feb 18 at 19:28

As Graphain said, use Greasemonkey.

And, because it's easy fun, I have written the GM script for you. :)

// ==UserScript==
// @name           Title Changer for web page XXX
// @namespace      Google
// @include        YourWebsiteHere.tld/*
// ==/UserScript==

window.addEventListener ("load", Greasemonkey_main, false);
Greasemonkey_main ();

function Greasemonkey_main ()
    document.title  = 'This is NOT the Highly Incriminating website you are looking for!';


A place to find additional scripts is: http://userscripts.org/ .


Use F11 to toggle Firefox's full screen mode - that will hide the title and URL.
