Can the color of a scrollbar thumb be changed, to improve visibility?
Light blue gray on light blue gray is not always easy to see. I have looked, but can't seem to find an add-on for this. I am using 4.0 with the 3.0 for 4.0 theme. I was hoping 4.0 would fix this-- I can't be the only one on Earth who wishes his scrollbars were as easy to find as his tabs. A nice, bright, custom color would make this much easier.
You probably need to set that in the Windows appearance setting of the Windows theme that you use.
I'm on Linux, so can't check that.
Control Panel > Personalization > Window Color and Appearance > Advanced
I appreciate your answer. I tried every reasonable theme there was; the only one that really worked made everything look like Windows '95. Not one of the available themes allowed the scrollbar color to be changed in the Advanced tab-- it just grayed out. I'll keep watching and hoping; someone will, I feel sure, get as bothered as I am-- and have an ability to do something about it. Again, my thanks.
You should be able to change the scrollbar color and appearance with the Stylish extension if it doesn't work with a Windows theme.
See /*----- SCROLLBAR CHANGES -----*/ in this style for an example:
