Add Email as Task Uses Inbox Count Instead of Subject Line as Task Name
When I try to add an email as a task using the firefox plugin I often get a task named something like "Inbox (199)" instead of the subject line of the email. This used to not happen every time but it is happening more frequently. I am not sure why it happens inconsistently though.
I am running the Firefox 16.02 and the newest version of the Todoist sidebar plugin.

I'm still running into this issue (Firefox 23.0.1, Todoist Firefox Addon 3.6).
In my case, I'm trying to add an email as a task from my Google Apps account, and the document title ends in the name of the organization associated with the account, e.g.:
[Subject line] - firstname.lastname@example.org - @mycompany.com Mail
This differs from the usual format for non-Google-Apps accounts:
[Subject line] - email@example.com - Gmail
In the example above, "firstname.lastname@example.org"; is incorrectly identified as the subject line of the email.
Thanks for looking into this so quickly, Brendon.
This issue affects only the Todoist Firefox addon.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a project in the Todoist sidebar.
2. In the same browser window, log into a Google Apps account and open an email.
3. Click "Add email as task" in the Todoist sidebar.
A new task should be created with the email's subject line as the task name.
A new task is created with an incorrect task name (i.e. some other part of the Gmail page's document title).
I hope this helps!
