Redesign for the Scroll-Bars

Posted

I find the Scroll Bars of Firefox currently to be a little out of date. There must be some Graphic Designer out there, who will make a new Design for them.

Firefox uses the scrollbars provided by the operating system. The scrollbars that you are seeing are the ones that Windows 10 uses. If you use Firefox on a different operating system (Mac or Linux, for example), the scrollbars will be different.

Hi,

The people who answer questions here, for the most part, are other Firefox users volunteering their time (like me), not Mozilla employees or Firefox developers.

If you want to leave feedback for Firefox developers, you can go to the Firefox Help menu and select Submit Feedback... or use this link. Your feedback gets collected by a team of people who read it and gather data about the most common issues.

Hello Vilter,

I doubt if developers are willing to redesign the scrollbars (they need to focus on real probems), but I think you would need to use CSS to change
the design :

Sadly changing it with CSS doesn't seem to work in Firefox right now, as the Scrollbars are set by the Browser.

You don't say (and I never asked) what it is that you would like to change, but in case it's the width :

In case it's the color :

(but userChrome.css code seems to sometimes change with updates and you'd have to put in some different code)
