Restoring FF scrollbars to something usable

I need the scrollbar widths to be wider. i have difficulty hitting them with a mouse anymore. Scrolling by hitting the area between the thumb and the (missing) buttons is just as hard, obviously, as it is the same, nearly invisible width. Using the buttons, oh yeah, like I said, they're missing.

I'm not new to this problem. I had this fixed in the past. I would fix it by changing CSS in one or both of two places: userChrome.css, and theming folders for my system. With the last update of FF the devil scrollbars returned, and since then nothing I have tried works. I'm aware of the legacy setting on userChrome.css and set that to true, with no effect.

There's a thread I could share on the Linux Mint forum where somebody asked about this a year ago, and I am not exaggerating, there were at least 10 different things to try.

I'm running FF 93 on Fedora 35 with a Cinnamon desktop. I don't want to do any more Google searches. Can someone point me, please to the DEFINITIVE answer on how to style the scrollbars, at least in my enivironment, and it would be really nice to not only get an answer, but one that will not become defunct when the next version of FF is released.

I installed Chrome, and scrollbars are usable out of the box.

You can look at widget*scrollbar prefs on the about:config page to adjust the scroll bar size.

  • widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.normal-size
  • widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.thin-size

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can click the button to "Accept the Risk and Continue".

Thanks! I even got the buttons turned back on (widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.allow-buttons).
