As you can see above, the close button is on the right Windows-style. But I want to make it fit with the elementary look. I think this requires messing around with Firefox's userChrome.css but I have no idea what to do from that point.

There is a theme available which makes Firefox look more native to elementary OS:

My brand new elementaryOS install has the close button on the left hand side. It looks like you have client side decorations enabled which saves vertical real estate by putting UI elements in the title bar.

To disable this, visit about:config in Firefox and set the preference browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar to false and restart Firefox.

  • Yeah I prefer it to save the real estate because IMO the title bar uses up too much space, especially on a laptop – user9564371 Dec 16 '18 at 17:12

You can use the elementary tweaks.

Open a terminal, then write and execute (by pressing ENTER) this commands, one at a time:

sudo apt install software-properties-common

will ask your password

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:philip.scott/elementary-tweaks

will ask you press ENTER to confirm the installation of the PPA

(newer version of add-apt-repository runs apt update after automatically. In case it didn't, just run sudo apt update yourself)

sudo apt install elementary-tweaks

  • This does not solve the issue. I've had Elementary Tweaks installed since day 1, any changes I do to Windo Controls Layout doesn't affect Firefox – user9564371 Dec 16 '18 at 17:11
  • I was about to say that, Firefox has his own system. – Sebastian Dec 16 '18 at 18:33

Look you can use someone's work, as a start point, for an old version of Firefox

  • This is just for the tabs though. What I'm looking for is for the whole browser window itself. – user9564371 Dec 16 '18 at 18:52
  • Is the same, I just wanted to illustrate that it isn't part of Elementary not even a topic of the Linux environment. Is Firefox you should look on how to do it, then ask there not here. Is Firefox who don't use the system way but his own through css (my point). – Sebastian Dec 16 '18 at 19:09
  • I've seen the thread you linked on the Mozilla Support and it didn't work on elementaryOS. I was just asking here on the off chance that somebody here has found a way to do it since all the solutions I've found through Google didn't seem to work for elementaryOS. – user9564371 Dec 16 '18 at 19:12
