Is it possible to put the Firefox tabs on the title bar when using KDE on Debian stable, similar to what happens on Windows?

There's an option on about:config, browser.tabs.tabsintitlebar that enables that on the current Firefox window but it stops doing that when closed or other windows are open.

You don't need to mess with about:config for that. Open up the hamburger menu (three horizontal lines) to the right of the URL bar and click on Customize. There's a checkbox at the bottom left labeled "Title Bar" that you can uncheck.

Edit:
In order get Firefox from Debian Unstable while still using the Stable repository for all of your other packages, add the following to your /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free

Next, add the following to etc/apt/preferences (create the file if it doesn't already exist):

Package: *
Pin: release a=stable
Pin-Priority: 1000

Package: *
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 2

Package: firefox
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: libfontconfig1
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: fontconfig-config
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: libnss3
Pin: release a=unstable
Pin-Priority: 1001

Then run sudo apt update && sudo apt install firefox

  • I can only assume that you're using Firefox ESR on your Debian Stable install, then. In order to use Firefox Quantum, you'd have to add Sid to your apt.sources and get Firefox Quantum from the Unstable repos via apt pinning – Pierce Griffiths Apr 26 at 12:05
  • Nope, it was the binary Firefox directly from their website. – Ivan Apr 28 at 14:44
  • If you're using the latest version, then I have no idea why the option isn't showing up. @Ivan – Pierce Griffiths Apr 28 at 14:47
