I do not generally use Windows much. However, I maintain a Windows
partition on my main laptop, for things like firmware updates, mobile
phone ROM flashing, etc.
I have Firefox, Chrome and my usual tools in it.
I updated it to 1809 this weekend, in fact.
I mainly use Waterfox now, but I do have Firefox around and have tried it.
I think what you describe may be due to your customisations, and is not
standard behaviour. My Firefox $CURRENT_VERSION has a title bar.
So with Linux, you are stuck with the plain blocky
interface unless you, as
the user, decide to become an expert as .css styling to restore some of the
fit and finish to the FF ui yourself.
I did not like its behaviour on Windows so I formerly used an extension
to customise it, which gives me the ability you describe -- to entirely
remove the title bar, at least when the window is maximised.
I will update my VM and see if I can reproduce this. I will report back.
Seriously, though, try vertical tabs. They are functionally superior in
every way. They are the reason I still use a Mozilla browser instead of
Chrome. For what very little it's worth, when I was at Red Hat, the
on-boarding guide essentially _instructed_ new hires to at least try it,
because the superior tab management it delivered was considere essential
functionality. I am not kidding here. It is not a minor, trivial detail.
With 70-80 open tabs, as I normally start my day, horizontally-arranged
ones are illegible: just a row of tiny buttons.
With vertically-arranged ones, I have a scrolling list of legible
titles, with the first 40 or so readable.
This is a *massive* difference.
