Feature Request - Include device hostname on web header/footer
When I'm viewing the web GUI of multiple pfSense boxes at the same time, I have a tendency to lose track of which device I'm viewing. I've already changed settings on the wrong device several times since I updated to v2.3.
Is it possible to display the host name of the device somewhere on the main GUI page so that I can always tell which device I'm managing?
Hover your mouse over the pfSense logo.
We have received a number of suggestions detailing other ways to display the hostname without hosing the menu. We'll probably pick one shortly.

It's also always in the page title, so it should be on your tabs. You can adjust whether the hostname comes before the page name (i.e. pfsense.local - Status: Dashboard) or after the page name (Status: Dashboard - pfsense.local) under System > Advanced > Browser tab text.
Sorry to take so long to respond to your ideas,
Thanks for your comments. I didn't notice that the browser tab displayed the DNS host name. Of course it would be nice if the logon page showed the host name too ;-)
