Bug Description

In Ubuntu 17.10 alpha (with Gnome being the default environment) - when compared to Unity on Ubuntu 17.04 and earlier - it is not possible to fully maximize a window.

There are two title bars in Ubuntu 17.10 alpha and Gnome after a window is maximized, while we had only one title bar in Unity and earlier Ubuntu versions.

Two title bars instead of one waste screen real estate and don't contain any extra information.

See this bug for Firefox. In a future release, Firefox will move its window control buttons to the same bar as the tabs which will save vertical space.
