Typically, this is done by adjusting the decorations.  Once you've decided
to show the [lets say] maximize button, it'll get handled.  There's no way
to block it since the event is dealt with in the non-client handler of the
window.  FOX itself never sees it.

On X11, its the same way since the decorations and maximization is done by
the window-manager.  All we get is a notify when its done.

So, long story short: just change DECOR_XXX options; you may need to play
around a bit with the options since some of them are coupled.

Hope this helps,
