As you might be knowing, starting from version 29, Mozilla plans to ship Firefox with a new Australis UI, which is already available in the Nightly Builds of Firefox. Recently we covered how to disable Australis and restore the classic theme in Firefox. In the latest builds, Mozilla has added a native option to enable the titlebar for the Firefox window. When the titlebar is enabled, it shows the current page title and browser icon. To enable it, follow these simple steps.
Click on the Menu button, which is located in the top right corner.
Click the "Customize" item at the bottom of the menu pane. Firefox will switch to the customization mode, and "Customize" item will be renamed to "Exit Customize".
Click the "Title Bar" button at the bottom of the customization pane.
Next, click the blue "Exit Customize" button. The titlebar with the page title and icon will become visible:
Bonus tip: If you need to know the corresponding about:config setting, it is the good old browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar option. In early pre-Australis builds, it controls whether tabs display in the title bar near the Firefox button or below it. Since the orange Firefox button is gone from the Australis UI, having this option enabled will turn on the title bar and place tabs under the title bar.
