    Re: why do Tabs in Firefox 4 not cover titlebar in Linux?

    So the window manager in Windows is what's allowing Firefox to do it? Or did Mozilla design Firefox-Windows to do it but not Firefox-Linux?

    As far as I know, there isn't a solution. However I haven't researched about this in a long time. Last time I read something about it, I guess the problem was something to do with Linux having multiple window managers. There was also a lot of trouble trying to implement the new Firefox menu too.

    Possible solution at: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/03/firef...-bar-like.html

    For the record, I haven't tried that and to be honest, didn't have patience to read all the stuff. I am using KDE anyways.

    I installed FF4 my windows/tri-boot machine just to fool around with it. I like the tabs above the browser, not above the address bar. I tab switch more that play with the address bar. Feh on four. (Unless there is a place to config where you want it)
    Yeah, you can just right-click the address bar and choose to have the tab bar displayed in it's old position.

    Work in progress. Mozilla want this to happen but as described it is not easy in Linux. You can work around it but it isn't trivial. This addon should do it for you but you might not be entirely happy with the appearance. You might want to try some CSS tweaks, such as described on this page.

    I have been reading phrases like that since the early betas.

    Re: Firefox 4 Mega Thread

    so it has to do with X windows? When ubuntu moves to Wayland, will this make it easier for Firefox?
