scroll bar old style

Posted

How can I configure Firefox to use an old style scroll bar?

The old style scroll bar showed a rectangular cursor, which represented the visible height of the page relative to the full height of the page, which was represented by the height of the scroll bar, and it allowed the page to be scrolled by dragging the cursor.

Now I have a scroll bar which does not provide any information about the visible part of the page relative to the full height of the page, and scrolling is a risky adventure, as I never know where I land after a click on the bar, and I have no idea how could I return to the previous location in the page.

The Firefox scrollbar on the right of your page isn’t something you can customize much with the browser’s options. However, with a few add-ons you can transform the scrollbar. NewScrollbars, Yet Another Smooth Scrolling and Scroll To Top are three add-ons you can revamp Firefox’s scrollbar with.

Is it not possible to use userChrome.css ? I hoped it is, because it's just the old scroll bar style, and addons are heavy.

The css files are missing on the interesting reddit page. Some add-ons are already obsolete.

I hope someone who knows firefox css configurations may post the solution for this problem.

Can you attach a screenshot?

Maybe try other Linux themes to see if you can find one that works better.
