    Cannot close Firefox in Window Mode


    Hello everyone :-),

    I seem to be having an issue with Windows 10 that has been a problem since the first Build and is still present in Build 10565. I cannot close Firefox in Window Mode I have to make it FULL Screen in order to close it. Please let me know if you have or had the same issue and how you solved it. Making the Browser FULL Screen lets Ad Companies and Hackers know your Resolution and Monitor size. Is there anyway to fix this?

    When I have it open on the Desktop and not in Full screen I click on the X in the Titlebar and it will not close until I make it Full screen and then click on the X to close it.

White window frames around every window.
Since 10122 I've noticed that they changed the window frames from using accent colours to just using white all the time. Personally I don't like this and I am wondering if there is a way to bring accent colouring back.
