Scrolling comment sections not working in the latest Firefox

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 and along with that I upgraded Firefox. It's no longer possible to scroll the comment section of articles, just the main page. I've seen this on both the National Review and the NY Times. The scroll bar is also not persistent, it only shows up when the mouse is over it. Is there a way to fix this or is this a bug in Firefox 100.0?

Chosen solution

Check Settings > General > Browsing > Always show scrollbars. It was unselected when I updated to version 100. Otherwise, search about:config for widget.non-native
