This edge case will be fixed in #5549, but we still need to be sure that user can't add an empty filter and in case he does, we still don't experience unexpected behavior mentioned in this reproduction ticket.

I couldn't reproduce this by adding filter list without title, seems like the issue was because script in the new-options.js didn't expect filter to be without title and that were causing unexpected behavior, which should cause only specific session(I mean the issue will dissapear the page will be reloaded) and this is no more the case as we have validation.

tl;dr: If we add Filter without title somehow, the URL is shown instead of title and it's issue mentioned here is un-reproducible anymore.
