    Not sure what all the fuss is about (first couple pages of comments). I've had Firefox with the titlebar disabled since that was first an option. Looks fine to me. It uses the same space for the tabs as the minimize/maximize/close buttons. Using Xfce 4.13 + compiz (gtk3, not gtk3-classic/mushrooms): screenshot

    Or are the people complaining about it using a specific desktop? (Does it not look like this in KDE?)

      Of all the reasons you could pick why you don't want to compile yourself, you pick the lamest one. Congrats, your post really gave me a chuckle there. Even with the additional wear caused by compiling software, a solid state drive will last years and years and years and years before it gives in. If you're really paranoid though, here's a really, really, really simple solution - compile on a mechanical hard drive.

        I wonder what's happening on KDE. If I understand things correctly, Firefox with CSD just uses GTK to draw a shadow. So if the KDE environment just sets an appropriate GTK theme, things should look fine. Just as QT apps look fine on Gnome (at least on fedora and ubuntu).

        To me this sounds like a distribution issue. Distributors should make sure that GTK apps use the current QT/KDE theme.

            Last time I checked it did not look good on Plasma. I will have to try with version 66.

              I don't know if you'll understand this, but "No company name" isn't a single contributor.

              (Thus, your evidence proves their point that Red Hat is the single largest contributor.)

                It seems the problem with shadows missing on KDE is because Gnome is rendering shadows in a non-standard way, and Kwin developers don't wanna implement hacks in order to support CSD windows with shadows. Here's where they discuss it: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=379637

                  Having to use ALT sucks. One thing that the KDE developers did right was implementing a sane keyboard shortcut in most KDE apps for showing/hiding the menubar: Ctrl + M. It would be great if other apps would also adopt that.

                    Can't say you didn't try.

                      It would be better if Firefox would do a quick DE check right before showing the window. That way, it could show the title bar when it detects Plasma and hide it when it detects GNOME. Obviously, they can't add all DE's and WM's, but they could at least at a check for the most used DE's/WM's (i.e. GNOME, Deepin, Plasma, i3, Xfce, etc.).
