Bookmarks Title to Tab
Is there a way to make the title of the bookmark in the bookmarks panel stay in place. I renamed a bookmark and it converted back to default on my tab. Can i make the title/nickname of my bookmark what my tab shows? What purpose does the nickname provide other than a search term?

You can name a bookmark anything you want, but the title that appears on a tab is the web page title encoded in the HTML code of the web page (open the saved .html from a web page in a text editor and see the text between <title></strong> and <strong></title> near the top of most pages).
AFAIK, there is no way to do this from typical bookmarks in any browser.
ok gotcha, I didn't know that…
I guess my question is then, what is the purpose of renaming a title in the bookmarks and what is the purpose of the nickname feature? Just wondering if there is some kind of usability of those things that I am missing and might be able to use.
Thanks for the reply
Changing the "name" of the bookmark changes its name that appears on the bookmarks bar. In my case, I place many bookmarks with highly abbreviated names and no icons across the bar; for others, it allows a more distinctive bookmark name to be applied than perhaps is the default name. Beyond that, sorting functionality-to-come may use the names and nicknames for grouping purposes.
