    Hiding the title bar by default on linux is idiotic. Try it out on one of the top used DEs, KDE Plasma, and see what happens. It might make sense on macOS or Windows, but it definitely doesn't on linux.

      i really like csd (hidden titlebar) for firefox on gnome. Saving vertical screen space is nice and you always have the tab-bar for dragging the window

        I use Firefox CSD on Plasma and it works great.

          Muting auto-playing audio is a nice addition, though, Firefox already had the added benefit of being able to mute specific tabs.

          I personally think it's more idiotic to have a redundant set of minimize, maximize/restore, and close buttons where the title bar basically just wastes vertical screen space.

            molecule-eye, I don't use KDE but GNOME and see nothing... Maybe try describe a little bit more what I should see and why you call it 'idiotic'.

              Why doesn't it make sense on Linux?

                CSD is really great! have already disabled the title bar and menu bar in FF 60 ESR and also in Thunderbird. But there is one problem: in FF I can get the menu bar when needed with ALT, but not in Thunderbird.

                  Without title bar it looks ugly indeed. Luckily you can easily toggle it. Also, it didn't hide it for me on KDE when updating to 66.

                    Better to save more vertical space to be able to increase the font size and margins (i.e. actual wasted space) some more.

                    I mean, when we'll have 1 character filling up the entire browser window, we won't be able to increase the font size anymore, and that's bad, anti modern design guidelines!
