The vertical page scroll bar on the right side of the screen is so narrow that the slider is difficult to accurately get your mouse over to move the page.  The result is that it requires far too much attention to employ this much-used scrolling function, and to date I have not been able to find a way to widen it.

For example, the scroll bar width is about half that on Microsoft's Edge browser, which I am now using as my main browser as a result of this problem with Firefox.

See attached image for a comparison of the two scroll bars.

Hopefully, this will be addressed soon.  Was this caused by a recent update?  I use Firefox (on Windows 11) often but now find it almost impossible to use due to this extremely narrow scroll bar.  The browser used to honor my Windows scroll bar width setting.
