I've solved this problem using the browser_page_title extension,

It's very easy.  After installing simply drop the following into your
TypoScript template in your root page:

includeLibs.tx_browserpagetitle =
config.titleTagFunction = tx_browserpagetitle->getTitle
plugin.browser_page_title {
    defaultTitle = SITE_TITLE | {title}
#    currentTitle = SITE_TITLE | {tx_browserpagetitle_browser_title}
    currentTitle = SITE_TITLE | {nav_title}

I left the commented out line in there as that is the system default,
which I prefer to nav_title.  The default method renders a new field on
the Standard page type where you can specify the browser page title.  I
prefer this to nav_title since it doesn't require the page type to be
