Is it possible to change this gradient to something else (preferably a solid color or the default gradual horizontal fade)?

Using Firefox 4.0 on WinXPx86 Pro SP3.

You can disable the 'tabs on top' feature. Obviously you will lose that option but you'll get your usual title bar back, making Firefox 4 look a little more like Firefox 3.

Sadly, Mozilla focused only on Windows 7 for their slick Firefox 4 UI. So, people get an additional title bar in older Windows'.

In a nutshell, no it's not possible. =/

I would think it is possible but you would be changing the color of all windows title bars - not just for Firefox. To change title bar colors you right click on the desktop and select properties. You can change the appearance of windows somewhere in there.

The thing is, no other window behaves this way. This is something special that Firefox does when you maximize it. – wes May 6 '11 at 23:28

Try playing with add-ons like Hide Caption Titlebar Plus.

For me it ended up looking like this:
