Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Titles beginning with double-quotes are missing their first and last characters in Stack Exchange global profiles
Hot Questions clips quotes wrongly in questions like '“this” and “that”'

The Stack Exchange dropdown seems to mangle questions that begin and end with a quote mark.

Compare to the actual title of the question.

I imagine this formatting occurs because, for most questions that are surrounded by quotes, removing them doesn't change the meaning of the title. "Maximum recursion depth exceeded" and Maximum recursion depth exceeded are both equally valid. But "X" vs. "Y" is more valid than X" vs. "Y.

Perhaps the dropdown should only strip quotes if the beginning and ending characters are the only quote marks in the title?
