Text Covering Tabs and Window Controls

It partially obscures the window's minimize and zoom buttons and then the tops of the browser tabs. They are not clickable, but they make it hard to read my left-most tabs, especially since they have a dark shadow underneath them. Is there a way to get rid of this text?
