Hide title bar by default in Firefox
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

I suggest we change over Firefox to hide the title bar by default now that we have updated to version 64. There have been efforts in the past for getting this implemented but it has since been turned back to using title bars since Firefox had a bug which led to bad rendering in the corners of the application. See screenshot below:

I can set browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar to true with next update if core team is okay with that
(this is what I personally do)

IIRC, it also caused issues under Plasma - Firefox window became unresizable with tabs in title bar. I don't know if this issue persists in Solus now (I don't use Solus Plasma yet), but it still persists, for example, in Kubuntu 18.04 with Firefox 64.
So, I think, we need some testing from Plasma users first.

I can confirm that it's working on plasma for a while already

Can you resize the window?

Seems to work in both MATE and Budgie.

Can confirm that it works in Budgie, MATE and GNOME. In KDE the window becomes unresizeable.

In which case, this is a WONTFIX until it can work under Plasma as well.

This will apparently be the the default following the release of Firefox 66. Let’s hope they get it sorted out until then...
