Hey,

with the FRESH update to Firefox, Mozilla team has dropped a lot of support for customization. One thing that bothered me was the inability to merge titlebar with tab bar (the default behaviour in Chromium-based browsers). However, a patch has been written and its being applied to every user at least in Fedora and OpenSUSE.

https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/7dre58/you_can_enable_client_side_decoration_in_firefox/

So I just wanted to point out how easy it is in Gentoo-based systems to apply the same patch. Download mozilla-bmo1399611-csd.patch from OpenSUSEs build service, or Fedoras package database, or the bug report.
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/mozilla/firefox57
https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/firefox/overview/
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1399611

Just place the patch in /etc/portage/patches/www-client/firefox-57.0/ and compile Firefox normally. Open about:config in Firefox, set widget.allow-client-side-decoration to true and restart Firefox.

Works with 57.0 from Gentoo's main portage. Maybe this could be included in official Gentoo builds as well, since natively this feature is coming in Firefox-59.

Awesome :D , I like how this creates more room for the actual webpage.

I wonder if something similar could work for thunderbirds tab bar, as it is a Mozilla application as well.

[EDIT] Nah, nevermind, can't seem to get it to work for thunderbird.
