Bug in Firefox 29B Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love this extension. Unfortunately in the new 29 Beta there is a bug: if you use Floating Main Menu and Disabled Titlebar, after you choose an item from the Floating main menu, the Titlebar will reappear. After that you can only hide it if you reenable the Titlebar then disable it again.

NEW VERSION Released for Fx29+

I've uploaded a NEW VERSION! full compatible with Firefox29+ (AUSTRALIS Theme) in *DEVELOPMENT CHANNEL* here.
Please download from that channel so you'll stay with latest version always.
(pre-release version fully tested on Windows)

Hi DarthMadara

I'm happysad to say that it does not look like I'll be using HCTP for the foreseeable future because the Australis update (Aurora channel) combined with the Classic Theme Restorer add-on appears to allow me to set up my 'fox in my unique way. FWIW that's three 'toolbars' with this content (from left to right):

1
- Sage/Pocket-dropmenu/Add to delicious buttons,
- three flexible spaces,
- separated back/forward
- old school menu (in effect centred in the top bar)
- separated reload/stop buttons
- three flexible spaces
- minimize/restore/close buttons (unsure why they have reappeared there without HCTP help)

2
- HTTPS button-dropmenu
- Location box
- Undo closed tabs button-dropmenu
- Tab groups button-dropmenu
- search box
- new 'light' download panel button (hate it but waiting for an update to Download Manager Tweak)
- Social paper-plane button
- Ghostery button

3
- Opened tabs drop menu
- three pinned tabs
- the scroll tabs left button
- tabs
- scroll tabs right button

Then I have a status bar at the bottom where it's always been and should always be :)

1
- Stylish button-dropmenu
- NoScript button
- AdBlock Plus button-dropmenu
- Progress meter
- status text
- Create TinyURL button
- Colorpicker button-dropmenu
- Firebug button-dropmenu

All of the buttons, be they on XP at home, of Win 7 at work, are styled with a raised effect that clearly makes them stand out as opposed to the 'flat' trend that Australis is obsessed with. That's thanks another great add-on: Classic Toolbar Buttons, by the same author.

About the only thing I'm not happy with, apart from the less-than-useful stock Download 'panel' is the lack of a drop-down option on the separated Back button. Not sure why this doesn't work when you hold on to it.

Thanks immeasurably for your add-on efforts Darth. I'm sure it's possible that I'll need to come back to HTCP to get my fox exactly the way I like it in the future. I applaud your efforts hugely. The people who wanted to create more screen space, but very little room for add-on interacting UI elements, by getting rid of the status bar and adding all the add-on to the right hand side of the location toolbar, like Chrome does, are misguided at best IMHO. By properly hiding the unnecessary title bar, HTCP gave me the same amount of room they saved by removing the status bar and yet the same space for add-on interaction UI elements.

Congratulations on a great add-on. It was an absolute pleasure to use and I really appreciate the effort it must take to fight the Mozilla minimalists and their copy-Chrome agenda. Keep up the great work!

Official Linux support? Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I find this addon very useful. However, it looks like developer has dropped support for Linux versions. It would be nicer if it was metioned in the description.

I have been using version 2.6.0 in Linux environment. Older versions can be found here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/hide-caption-titlebar-plus-sma/versions/

I use this On My windows 7 And love it. I'm currently using it on my Netrunner Linux Os and it works just great. Just can't see some options. but they are still selectable. Woooooo!!

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is my #1 favorite addon. I love personalization. I was a loyal Chrome user for years and as soon as I saw Firefox, I loved the advanced level of personalization it had, but I hated how it uses the default window theme (in this case, Windows 7's Aero) and I almost switched back to Chrome because of that. Then I found this addon and I immediately fell in love with the extra personalization it adds. The ability to make the interface much cleaner and completely remove the aero border. This is on my list of must-have addons, and the one that made my decision to give up Chrome clear.

Works in Linux Too!! Great!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add on is great and it works in Linux too. Please remove the windows only quotient from the package. I have tested in Kubuntu 13.10 x64 with FF26

great addon! I highly recommend to use this Stylish script with it =>
userstyles.org/styles/43377/firefox-orange-menu-button-hider

Actually brilliant if configured right Rated 5 out of 5 stars

and not sure what dudipunk meant that its not compatible with Fx 25, its working fine at my end.

The Firefox menu bars always been a bugbear how bad it is, and never understood why they havent addressed it, but this addons an elegant solution, and the resized minimize/maximize/close buttons have been something ive wanted for awhile, shortof reskining windows itself, so also welcome. Fwiw, still prefer using the newer Firefox 'menu button' menu, but to allow the 'menu bar' to popup the way this does, giving access to both at the same time is good, also looks good with a font change like http://img577.imageshack.us/img577/1605/r2zr.png - if you wanto try that, see the script below, can be added to a userChrome.css in your profile chrome folder or added as a Stylish script

but if using a persona probably need to change the themes "textcolor" to #000000 in about:config for the "lightweightThemes.usedThemes" prompting HCTP to render a white background, otherwise its black. Just click that entry and use the arrow till the first instance of "textcolor" appears which'll be your active theme, (and it wont change the backing till youve swapped that theme out and back) script:

menubar > menu {
color: #282828 !important;
font-family: Lucida Console !important;
font-weight: normal !important;
text-shadow: -1px 0px 1px rgba(255, 230, 150, .8), -1px 1px 1px #444444 !important; }

menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"][open="false"] {
color: #282828 !important;
font-family: Lucida Console !important;
font-weight: normal !important;
text-shadow: -1px 0px 1px rgba(255, 230, 150, .8), -1px 1px 1px #444444 !important; }

menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"][open="true"] {
color: #282828 !important;
font-family: Lucida Console !important;
font-weight: normal !important;
text-shadow: -1px 0px 1px rgba(255, 230, 150, .8), -1px 1px 1px #444444 !important; }

can also set it to look heavier by changing font weight to bold. And if you stop using this addon, might find the beige shadow color 255 230 150 (FFE696) looks too obvious with some lightweight themes, cause the menus rendered on the theme itself, so added transparency option to tone it down if necessary where .8 means 80% opacity

anyway thanks DarthMadara

Excellent extension.
Means I can fit in all the UI elements and functionality I want without compromising on browsing space when maximised or usability when windowed.

The only issue I have is that when in full screen mode (either via F11 or full screen HTML5 video) the custom ui elements like the Firefox button or the custom close buttons are not hidden (or in the case of the close buttons, exposed even if they are hidden in the settings). Not a major issue, but kinda annoying especially with video.

For those of us with net-books, a wonderful tool.

Great way to save screen space in Linux Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon says Windows only. Not sure why, as it insrtalls and runs great in Linux. This remove the fairly pointless space wasting titlebar, saving a nice chunk of vertical space, putting it on par with Chrome in terms of vertical real estate. Highly recommended for all Linux users. Not sure why this functionality isn't included in vanila Firefox, to be honest.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This add-on, while listed as for Windows only, does actually install and work on Linux. The preferences even include Linux (and Mac) specific options.

While I'd rather use Chromium, on my netbook it takes up too much RAM, hence I'm using Firefox. This add-on gives me back the same screen real estate I had with Chromium, so thanks for an excellent add-on!

Plenty of customisation features too, although the defaults worked pretty well, and seemed to have detected that I'm running Linux.

Cool and helpful! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's really cool and helpful! Thank you very much for great work!
