How do I hide the FF4 title bar under Linux (to have it look like FF4 on Windows, or indeed Google Chrome)?


It's great that the menu can now be displayed in the tab bar with tabs-on-top, but it would be even better if the titlebar itself could be hidden! I believe this is already the case on FF4/Windows 7. Maybe I have just not discovered how to turn on this feature?

Chosen solution

You can hide the titlebar in a very easy way if you are using Compiz.

Just open CompizConfig preferences and find "Windows decoration" Now, in the line called "Decoration windows" type this: (any) & !(class=Firefox)

My favourite solution is installing devilspie, which can run as deamon.

Here's my configuration file to be put in a *.ds file under ~/.devilspie.

(if (is (application_name) "Iceweasel") (undecorate) )

That's all.
