Yes, please do.

Right.  That is what it means to be fullscreen.  If you leave fullscreen, you will once again get decorations (including the resize grab widget).

What hints are kmail providing to quartz-wm?  Can you please run:

xwininfo -all

Then click on the window.  I just tested firefox, and it behaves correctly under normal usage (starting windowed and entering/leaving fullscreen).

I do see something odd when it starts in fullscreen mode, so perhaps those are the same issues.  Please file a bug report.
