Is the lack of window controls an existing issue with this patch? I can't seem to find any mention of this except from some very old (and likely unrelated) similar bug reports that have been resolved. Desktop environment is KDE.

@Nikatar No, it has been ever since. But, ubuntu packages work fine in Ubuntu.

I do not experience such problems, because in my firefox the tabs are located on left side. By the way, I have titlebar turned on in firefox, but since I use the tiling wm, it is not.

Huh,apparently the problem is in the CSD

This bug appeared only since this version?

@arifzeeshan, this is the titlebar of windwow, isn't it?

Try it:

@Nordkamp This issue is not when using Ubuntu.

@nikatar The top space between the tab and appmenu as indicated by arrow here-

@arifzeeshan, what paddings do you mean? I saw only one "suspect" padding: The rest is like "Flexible Space" from "Personalize". Could you like me to mark them in order to make it understandable?

@arifzeeshan unfortunately that is a side-effect of this patch in general, from what I've read it's because to get that menu normally you hit Alt which extends the padding on the top of the window to show the options. From what I understand essentially this patch tricks firefox into constantly thinking that menu is enabled and exports it to the application menu, and thus this particular quirk occurs. I don't know if there is a way to resolve this, you may have to search online.

There seems to be an issue with this patch when using vala-panel-appmenu global plugin Arch Linux. It's even on the Firefox-ubuntu-bin package. Does anyone have any idea why is there so much padding as shown in the image-
