How to&Answers:

Your PDF document should have Title metadata set. Afterwards, browser will use it for rendering tab title.

Answer:

In Acrobat Pro, open the PDF and select File -> Properties -> Description and then edit the meta data title (and others if required) as you see fit.

We only saw the title being displayed like this in Firefox.

Answer:

Put it in a div inside a page and change the page title like this:

<head>
  <title>YOUR TAB TITLE</title>
</head>

and then:

<div>
<object data="test.pdf" type="application/pdf" 
width="300" height="200">
    alt : <a href="test.pdf">test.pdf</a>
   </object>
</div>

You can also set the object width and height to match the page.
