@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-

Could you please share firefox-appmenu you compiled? In this case, I would update bin-version.

@deathye: a simple workaround:

Remove the build cache (in my case I use aurman, adjust for your needs).

$ rm -rf ~/.cache/aurman/firefox-appmenu

update/install it again - when it starts compiling:

If you already got a working copy of firefox-appmenu installed:

$ cp /usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic/apps/firefox-symbolic.svg ~/.cache/aurman/firefox-appmenu/src/

alternatively you can get the icon from my site for now:

$ cp ~/Downloads/firefox-symbolic.svg ~/.cache/aurman/firefox-appmenu/src/

Firefox-appmenu-bin! Thanks @Nordkamp for compilition!

Alright lads I built it, for my computer it was just under 2hrs. Here is the link: the executable is in usr/lib/firefox, let me know if you experience any problems. Hopefully now there can be a firefox-appmenu-bin.
