Remove the title bar to get more screen space (like in Chrome).
1. Remove the title bar
At the very end of
rc.xmlfile, above the line
</openbox_config>, add these three lines in
<application class="Firefox"> <decor>no</decor> </application>
2. Deal with the lack of Minimize/ Maximize and Close
After remove the title bar drawn by Openbox, the
Minimize/ Maximize and Close button will also be lost. Following is my two solutions:
2.1 Three add-on: Minimize/ Maximize and Close
Install these three add-on to have these functional buttons:
The look is awesome.
The feel when use the main windows is not differrent than Chrome. However, other windows such as “Download”, “History”, “Bookmark”… still do not have minimize/ maximize or close button at the conner of the window, I have to use Ctrl + F4 to close them off.
Also, I lost the ability to double click to the title bar (of course) to minimize or restore window. I have to mention this because in Chrome I still can do the action.
2.2 Toggle decoration
Sometimes not having a title bar is very inconvenient so I have added a shortcut key of
Window + Bto make it appear whenever I want - by adding these line to my
<keybind key="W-b"> <action name="ToggleDecorations"/> </keybind>
