Arrgh. Fscking Netscrape.

I have it set to start by displaying my bookmarks list. There is no way to get rid of either the Personal Toolbar Folder (although you can delete all its entries, thankfully) or the top header; nor can you change the text of the header. Thus both of these things are wasting my VALUABLE VERTICAL SCREEN REAL ESTATE which should be PRODUCTIVELY occupied displaying BOOKMARKS.

I have the same bitch about the menubar, toolbar, location bar, status bar, and title bar (ok, that last is the window manager's fault). An entire inch of my screen is lost to this crap. Mozilla seems to have fixed this, mostly... maybe I should look into that again.

What I want is a version of fvwm2 that can steal the menu bar and shove it up into the title bar. Do this without making me list explicitly every application that gets the special treatment. And it should work on Emacs. GNOMEheads, are you listening?

P.S.: Does anyone know how to get rid of the damn splash screen and go straight to the start page?
