    Question Firefox / Abrowser wasted space problem - Plugin needed

    I use Abrowser - which is Firefox without the branding.

    At the top of the browser is a bar which totally wastes vertical real-estate on my display. You can see an image in the file I attached.

    Is there a way to get rid of this bar at the top. All it does is tell you the name of the web page you are viewing. I don't need that. The minimimize/maximize buttons on the right I have highlighted. They could much better be placed in the bar below. I have indicated this with a red arrow.

    Is there an extension or plugin that gets rid of this bar?

    Thank you!

    By the way, I wanted to include the image in-line in the text, but when I click on the insert image button it says Please enter the URL of your image. The image is not on a website. It is in my Pictures folder in my home directory. How can I put such an image into the message?

    I'm not aware of any way to remove the titlebar, but I agree it could be useful.

    As for your query about images in-line with text, can I suggest that you forget doing that. Whenever I see a post with images in-line it puts me off reading the post at all, as I find it much more difficult to read that way. Why do you think images as attachments are not as good?

    AJ has a point. The way to get your images inline, though, is to uplaod them to one of those online galleries and then link to the picture using the img button that you already have tried. I don't bother. I find an attachment better.

    As far as the Tabs go, I seriously doubt you can change that. How would you choose which tab to view if they were not visible?

    I could do that on Win 7 but I don't think it's possible on Linux.

    I like to see the tabs and want to keep them viewable where they are. What I don't want to see is the Title Bar, as I now know it is called. The only useful thing in the title bar for me is the minimize/maximize buttons.

    I think Google Chrome gets by without a title bar...

    On my Firefox, F11 puts it into fullscreen mode. The title bar goes, but so do the tabs. You would have to change back (F11 again) to change tabs or go to a new page.

    Thanks to ajgreeny I learned that it was called the title bar. I was able to search for Title Bar extensions and found a good one to remove the title bar, Hide Caption Title Bar Plus.

    The default setting is to shrink the title bar. After configuring the extension preferences the title bar went completely.

    This depends on whether or not you use the gtk+ theme in chromium's settings ->Personal stuff. Change that to Classic theme and the title bar goes away.
