Open Config.h and change CONFIG_RESIZE_UPDATE to False.  Recompile.

No way!  Vertical screen space is much more expensive than horizontal
space.  Just think: a normal A4 previewed at 96 dpi is 794x1122 pixels
large.  You can see the full width of the page on a 15-inch monitor
(800x600), but you need a 21-incher (1600x1200) to see the full height
-- and even then you'd need to hide all taskbars and stuff.  The last
thing the world needs is yet another window manager with titles on

Besides, vertical titles are way cool and you'll get used to them
after a while.

Good.  You could start by implementing horizontal window titles,
surrounding the code by ifdefs. ;-)
