Posted

I'm left handed and want the vertical scroll bar on the left. I used to be able to do this with firefox but now I can't find how to do it in your help section. Help!

You need to change your settings in about:config. Here's what to do:

  1. Enter about:config into the address bar (if it gives a warning about your warranty, click the button to say you'll be careful)
  2. Enter layout.scrollbar.side into the search box at the top of the page
  3. Double-click the result and replace the current value with a 3 when the prompt comes up
  4. Click 'OK' and then restart Firefox.
