Moving window boxes around

Hello. When I drag a window around, let's say fire fox, instead of the entire window following my mouse, it's an outline of the box instead. how do i change it so that the entire fire fox window is moving when i hold down my mouse and drag it? Thanks!

Visible Content When Moving a Window
