How do I get rid of the three new buttons in the top right of the browser window?
I'm on the beta update channel (just installed the latest update to 21.0 this morning) and in the last update or two there's been 3 buttons on the top right of the window. I know the 2 on the left and center are to minimize and shrink the window and based on the icon I'm guessing the 3rd will exit or close. These 3 icons are taking up a full line dropping down everything else and I want to get rid of them to move everything back to the top. I can still move around and change everything else but these 3 seem to be permanent. Is there any way to move them or even better just delete them completely? They're very annoying!!!

Hopefully it will attach this. Here are the 3 on the top in the upper right corner that I'm taking about. They're the only 3 things on this line and they push everything down a full line to be there and I haven't found a way to get rid of them.
Does that happen when you are using the default Firefox theme?
Maybe it is a theme compatibility issue? I've tried it with all of my themes and they all have done this but setting the default theme it's not there. HHhhhhmmmm... I'm not a fan of the default theme so I guess I'll have to decide if it annoys me enough to use it or if I'll just live with it and keep my themes. At least it's a minor issue and nothing major!!
You aren't showing the full screen in the screenshot.
Is the bar on top the regular Firefox menu bar as maintained by your Mac OS and to you get this extra bar below that bar?
Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons).
- Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.
Tabs on the bottom, hmmm, maybe that's not supported as well as it used to be?
Such window control buttons can be shown on the Navigation Toolbar if Firefox is in full screen mode.
There may be a detection issue on Mac with the theme where toolbars may behave differently and the menu bar can't be styled or otherwise modified.
