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.
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)
agreed. Scroll bar width should be customizable. A few years ago ( my memory fails me) this was not an issue . I consider this to have been a questionable administrative decision without an option of customization and without programmer skill rewrites. Users need developer understanding not dismissal. We recognize issues of screen real estate (but with incorporated hiding) this seems of little consequence. Please make this a reasonable consession to usability!
The vertical scroll bar for Bookmarks is also ridiculously narrow and I can't seem to find a way to narrow it. Please Firefox provide users with a solution.
The original post is dated May 03, 2022. That's a long time ago in this computer age. Fixing the error must be much more difficult than those of us who took the time to comment understand. Is there a reply/update as to what the reason for the non-action? The problem is so irritating that I'm seriously considering switching to Microsoft Edge.
Hi, if you scroll back a few pages you can see how to customize it make it wider.
In the post from SqueakyEnv there is an advise for WIndows 11 users:
"In another discussion in this area, I learned that I can get scrollbars back by going to "Visual Effects" in the Accessibility menu in Windows 11 settings, then selecting "Always show scrollbars." That worked!
It worked in my environment (Win 11) to."
