Currently, the tab name (i.e., the name that appears in the tab in Google Chrome and other browsers) for pfSense's Login page is "Login." That extremely generic tab name can lead to identification issues with things like password managers (specifically, KeePass). It would be nice if that tab name were more identifying. Perhaps something like "pfSense Login." Another possibility might be to change the tab name to be the hostname if the "Login hostname: Show hostname on login banner" option is turned on under System > General Setup (after all, with that option checked, that information would already be present on the page).

This is a big help. Looks good. Thank you. Not sure if this should be the entire FQDN like the post-login title.

Short hostname seems good enough to me. If you have enough tabs open to need the distinction, the size of most tabs would only show the short hostname anyhow.

Might be something to consider changing for 2.5.0 if enough people want the FQDN
