Can I disable titlebar of particular apps?

Hi there everyone!

In Windows, my Firefox integrates the titlebar(min, max, close) with the tab bar while my linux Firefox has the traditional titlebar above the tab bar.

I'm just wondering if I could disable the titlebar for Firefox and gain the tri-buttons back onto it's tab bar?

Hugely wide pic of comparison, if needed.

Thanks for your time!

Indeed you can, chuck this into your rc.xml

    <!-- I want Firefox maximized without borders -->
    <application class="Firefox*">
      <maximized>yes</maximized>
      <decor>no</decor>
    </application>

Then restart openbox.

^ That will remove the decor of firefox, including the window butons.

Probably have to find a custom theme file for Linux firefox to make it look like Windows version; I don't know if the Windows theme file can just be converted.

Something like the strata XP for linux?

In the Firefox customise menu there is an option you either tick or untick that places the buttons either in the Titlebar or not?

That may be it. In the Windows version of Firefox, there is a check box for "titlebar" in the customize options. Unchecking it, removes the titlebar and moves the buttons to the menu bar. I've never noticed (looked for) if it's in the Linux version.

Its there, depends on what version of FF is being run.  I think it is FF69 that first introduced that.

what damo posted.

Read through this - Openbox Help Applications - disabling decor for all applications is the first entry in the Examples section.

I think openbox now supports a <decor>border</decor> option so you can at least maintain the border.
