I have stopped using Firefox even though I love it because when it is the Active Window in Windows 10, the Firefox title bar stays gray in color instead of lighting up with the Active Windows 10 color that I have selected for the Windows 10 operating system. I am aware of the Firefox Themes but I do not want that add-on. The themes, like the Firefox default Title Bar, never change color to indicate it is the active window. I sometimes have multiple Firefox windows open and it becomes confusing when all those gray bars across the top of the browser windows are all the same color when I need the one that is currently active distinguish itself from all the others. My 2nd preferred browser is Chrome and it does this beautifully so unfortunately I am using Chrome now. I do hope Firefox will change their current practice of "painting over" the default active title bar set by the operating system with a static gray bar and let Windows set the Active Window apart from all the others! Then I will happily return to using Firefox like I have for many years.

Solução escolhida

I found a solution that I thought I would post here in case others dislike the Firefox gray title bar. It involves creating a folder in the AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{filename}.default area and creating a folder called Chrome and a file inside that folder called userChrome.css. Once I pasted in the code and saved the file and restarted Firefox, when it came up the title bar is now picking reflecting the active Window color I set for Windows 10 window objects. I do not know if there will be fallout due to this but so far so good. If anyone is interested, here is the link: http://www.askvg.com/tip-get-colored-titlebar-back-in-mozilla-firefox-in-windows-10/ It's really too bad Firefox chooses to cover up the default Windows color for the active window to prevent distinguishing that window from all the other (inactive) windows. I would love to know the reason behind this decision and why I had to resort to hunting down, creating and installing code to achieve what should be default behavior.

UPDATE 11/09/16-One drawback I noticed with this approach is the tabs are not easily distinguished, no lines/borders/outline and the color of the tab is the same color as the Windows active window title bar. To improve on this, I used an add-on I've used before but had stopped using. It's called Colorful Tabs and it did the job of changing the color of each tab so they stand out against the background color in the title bar.

hello, this is a primarily community-run support forum so it's probably not the right place to request features like this (we cannot implement any features & devs won't read here).

please either use https://input.mozilla.org/feedback for general feedback or if you feel that it's a missing feature in the browser file a bug at bugzilla.mozilla.org.

Hi   !
You've made it clear that you don't want the   'Themes'  add-on;   but maybe you'd consider this one:

I appreciate your reply but this add-on is for highlighting active tab. I am needing the entire Firefox Title Bar window to reflect that it is the active Window. Example: I have three Firefox windows up, two on first monitor and third on second. I cannot tell one is the current active window. I think I've got the correct one active I want to type in and one of the other Firefox windows reacts causing problems/errors, I forgot it was, say Firefox Window #2 instead of #1. I guess you get the idea. I am always having to first click in the Firefox window I need to work in to make sure it's active before typing. But thanks again. One note: If I click on something that pops-up a smaller Firefox window, its behavior is correct. It picks up the current setting color from Windows operating system (10) so the small Firefox window's title bar has the active window color.

Couldn't let it go just yet and I'm giving it one more shot:

I think the article you link to gives an explanation for the change. Probably Firefox is not alone in making such a change it looks rather like LibreOffice may have done something similar.
