Before I get too far into this question, have you ever ran firefox in fullscreen mode? Just fit F11, or go to View -> Fullscreen. Not sure if that is the direction you want to take though.
Thanks for the suggestion but I used Firefox as an example, all apps use the same titlebar.

I tried that before but didn't do much.

I'm aware that the "tabs" section in Firefox4 is not part of the Titlebar, I'm talking about the area above the tabs, which is caleld the Titlebar, I only used firefox as an example...

I edited the metacity theme xml file "metacity-theme-1.xml", located in /home/User_Name/.themes/ThemeName/metacity-1/
and changed the "title_vertical_pad" value from 10 to 0 and that fixed the problem... Thank you.
