As of Gnome 3.6, Files (previously known as Nautilus) removes its title bar when maximized. Several other Gnome apps that I generally don't use also do this, e.g. Epiphany.

Is there a way I can stop them from doing this, so that when I maximize an app, it would still have a title bar?


I found that a preference "ignore-request-hide-titlebar" was added in 3.6. Unfortunately the preference is not loaded from gsettings, so I wrote an extension to set it: https://github.com/garyvdm/gnome_shell_ignore_request_hide_titlebar
