Web Extension API doesn't provide any way to hide titlebar. You can try to use external process via Native Messaging API, but it isn't good solution (a very bad hack actually) and will have complicated installation instruction. I have no plan to make it.
Mozilla Firefox will have native support for CSD soon (not sure that it will be shipped in Fx 57). You can track progress in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1283299 and help with testing for example.
Sorry for starting another post but there isn't a reply option so i just wanted to thank you for taking the time to explain that the new Firefox CSD will resolve this issue in later releases , It looks awesome. :)
Here is a Link of how it looks if anyone is interested.
très sur ff 56 et cinnamon, merci!
I really appreciated this addon for the vertical space savings that it gave. Unfortunately it does not work anymore. For anyone looking for an alternative in Gnome the Pixel Saver gnome addon (https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/723/pixel-saver/) works great!
Hopefully this add-on will be continued or there is an alternative!
I tried "Hide Caption Titlebar Plus", too, but for me it is overloaded...
This is a GREAT extension... But with Major issues. Firefox set to maximized in GNOME is far from maximized. A HUGE titlebar Dominates the top and Wastes an excessive amount of space without this extension. The problem, Well, other than this being an issue to begin with, is that the development of this Great extension has been discontinued and the new changes in Firefox make it harder to use as of Now, however, it will stop working all together relatively soon. This is such a negative for me that it will force me to change either to a different browser or perhaps to a different Desktop Environment. It sure would be nice if this could be fixed somehow without making such a change.
Making it useless soon :(
Otherwise, excellent addon! Saves lots of space. Looks good.
this add-on 's review show you how it make firefox be similler with other gnome3 applications.
it's real and effective.
you'd better install it if you're the fucking gnome 3 user.
Hope it get updated to support multiprocess and then get discontinued later :D
it would be better if this problem is solved.
Excellent add-on. Unfortunately it was discontinued but would be great if some developer took a fork to keep it updated.
I don't even use Gnome but this works perfectly.
...been using this for I don't remember how long.
I simply cannot tolerate Firefox/variants without it.
Tried others but always come back to this one.
I'm using this on Fedora 25, Gnome 3, and Firefox Developer Edition on the Aurora channel; so I'm running the newest of just about everything. This add-on works great, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. It also has an option to hide the title "always" (Rather than just when it is maximized) which is super great for me, as I always have my screen split in half with text editor and terminal on one half, and Firefox on the other. I hope someone takes this project on to keep it running (or merges it into core), as I can't stand the huge title bar!
Still works on Fedora 25.
It should be installed by default or merged into some gnome-compatibility addon.
Installed both two extension may cause high CPU usage.You can disable "Work only with GNOME Shell" to workaroud the issue.
Works excellent with Firefox 51.0.1 on KDE plasma 5.8.5 (Mint 18.1). Needs to enable 'legacy mode'. Pity it's discontinued...
Works as advertised! It's a pity that it's discontinued.
This is a must for a Gnome 3.* desktop!
Why have it been discontinued?
Kde legacy mode works !
Works on Firefox Developer Edition 52.0a2 and Gnome 3.22.2...
Also there is a setting to hide the title bar even when the window is not maximized.Double-clicking does not minimize/maximize though.....for those of you who were wondering.:-P
Thanks for this awesome Add-on!
in gnome 3.22.2 and firefox 50.1.0, great and awesome
