I went into about:config and changed the following values in order to widen the scrollbar:

css. scrollbar-width was true changed to false idget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override was 0 changed to 100 widget.non-native-theme.enabled was true changed to false

Changing these values didn't widen my scrollbar. Without getting into coding, is there another way to make the scrollbar wider? (I changed them all back to the original settings when they didn't work.)

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

See also the release notes.

Scrollbars on Linux and Windows 11 won't take space by default. On Linux, users can change this in Settings. On Windows, Firefox follows the system setting (System Settings > Accessibility > Visual Effects > Always show scrollbars).

Maybe look at widget.non-native-theme prefs like these on the about:config page.

  • widget.non-native-theme.win.scrollbar.use-system-size
  • widget.non-native-theme.win11.scrollbar.force-overlay-style

This is a screenshot of my scrollbar on the right. It's probably only about 1/16" wide.

That did the trick. Thanks very much!

If the 'override' preference doesn't work, try changing the preference at the bottom of your second screenshot. The number 4 will evidently give you a wider scrollbar. You may be able to change the override preference with a different style.

The style of scrollbars to use. Here are the current options: widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.style 0: Default platform scrollbar style. 1: macOS scrollbars 2: GTK scrollbars 3: Android scrollbars 4: Windows 10 scrollbars 5: Windows 11 scrollbars
