Please, please, please give an option to set the width of the scroll bar in Firefox. It's so narrow that about 50% of the time when I try to drag it down, I end up dragging down the whole window. I'm sure it's nice for those who have their smartphone welded to their palm, but some of us still use PCs occasionally, and it's so annoying I usually just use the Page Down key, making the scroll bar pointless. I can't imagine anyone with less than great vision even trying to use Firefox because of this.

Your scroll bar is too thin.  Fix it!

Please bring back the scroll bars

Getting rid of the automatic scroll bars was a terrible idea. New features should be upgrades, b not downgrades.

yes absolutely, it could be indicated thin but it needs to get broad in order

for comfortable handling,

for now I helped me out by putting in about:config to

widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.style

the value 4, but this should be implemented shouldn't be so hard,

I wasted my time like for 30 Minutes on this important issue

The thin scroll bars are driving me nuts.  I use Thunderbird on a PC.  NOT a cell phone.  I'm 82 years old and a retired EE that wears tri-focal glasses.  I have tried everything I could think of with about:config to no avail.  Please help!

I also detest the micro hiding scrollbar. I am using a laptop now that had Firefox as its default browser but I'm changing that after I post here. I completely don't get it, it screams 25 year old software engineers shoving something they think is cool down others throats. How is this even ADA compatible?

The scroll bars are far too slim /too narrow! Change this back to the Windows standard width as soon as possible!!

I notice that the About Firefox box mentions that the intention of this browser includes "Accessible to all." It clearly is not accessible to people with visual or mobility challenges, and it seems like a simple option. We're not asking for the scrollbar to be changed to wide for everyone, just that those of us who need it that way have a choice. Apparently we don't matter to Mozilla, and I suggest we start publicizing that fact to the many organizations who advocate for people with disabilities.

Please return to the wider scroll bars in earlier versions.  Th new scroll bars are way too narrow and exceedingly difficult to latch onto to control scrolling up and down.  I am returning to an older version for this reason only

What did they smoke to make it smaller?

Message for Firefox developers:
Count of angry people is still not high enough for rolling back the mistake of thin scrollbar ?
Please don't wait till Christmas to give us the rollback as a gift, it's not needed, we all appreciate it ASAP, no need to give us anything else !
(I have now version 107.0, 64b on Linux)
