I have updated to ubuntu 13.04 and install gnome 3.8. I have some questions how to customize it. It now looks like this:

What confusing me:

  1. I can't find how to change color of top bar, I found how to change theme for windows, but it didn't affect on top bar.
  2. Some app have app bar both on top and bottom bar (on screenshot - its Firefox). I want top bar have no app bar.
  3. It seems for me that after gnome 2 in 3.8 there is less usefull space for window, I dodn`t know what exactly wrong, but may be in previous version there were not so many bars?
