How do I make the scroll bar wider? It is way too narrow.


Upgrading from V. 3.5 has been good, except that the design of the scroll bar, while perhaps fashionable, makes the bar harder to hit with the mouse. Searching Help for "scroll" or "Scroll bar" produced nothing relevant.

Widening all the scroll bars in my Windows theme worked fine for me. Previously, my Firefox scroll bar was as thin as the window border, making them easy to confuse. I'm perfectly happy applying a global setting to make all scrollers wider. Maybe there's something similar on the Mac you can adjust?

Thanks for taking a shot at this. Unfortunately, I don't know how to modify the theme. I have Stylish installed, but haven't used it yet. I had looked in its available features for scroll bars, but didn't find any.
