Disable custom (small) scrollbar

Posted

Latest Firefox version on Windows 10 Pro

Hi,

On the left side of the image you see Twitch.tv (example) and it has a very small vertical scroll bar. On the right side of the image you see this forum (example) and it has a normally sized vertical scroll bar.

I don't know if it's the site that is able to control the scroll bar or if it's the browser that automatically sizes things but is it possible to disable custom sized scroll bars so I always have a normal sized scroll bar?

Thanks.

A scroll bar is present when the item being displayed is larger than the space provided by the webpage program.

Check your zoom controls.

<Control> (Mac=<Command>) + (plus) enlarge - (minus) reduce 0 (zero) restore

Zoom in/out didn't really matter. And I'm not quite sure you understood my question. I don't mind the scroll bar, in fact I want it to be there. I just don't want it to be so small (left side attached image) but instead I always want it to be normal size (right side attached image)

You can set these two prefs to false on the about:config page to disable custom scroll bars.

  • layout.css.scrollbar-color.enabled = false
  • layout.css.scrollbar-width.enabled = false

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I accept the risk!" to continue.

Thanks for your reply. This setting looked like exactly what I needed but I've set both to false and restarted the browser but it doesn't seem to make a difference. At least not on Twitch.tv

That website seem to be disabling the Firefox scroll bar and use a JavaScript library to create its own scroll bars that are shown on hover.

Ah ok. I figure you would've posted a way to disable that if there was some but just to be sure: is there a way to disable that? :P
