Steps to reproduce:

Right click on addressbar

Actual results:

Firefox brings up its own context menu.

Expected results:

Firefox should follow Gnome gsettings, and either offer the deafult window manager context menu or maximize. (In gnome, there is a setting to right-click a CSD headerbar to maximize the window, which is useful because you don't have to hunt for empty space to double-click on).

Firefox's own addressbar context menu can be be presented by right-clicking the hamburger menu (or these options can just be relegated to the hamburger entirely). Everywhere else, I think it makes more sense to follow Gnome defaults.

This is the second issue I am filing regarding Firefox CSD's inconsistency with Gnome's CSD. The other one is here:

I think consistent window management across applications is very important to the user experience.

By address bar, I mean the entire rectangle which contains the addressbar and various buttons - not just the addressbox. (obviously the addressbox should continue to have its own context menu).
