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.
Success! Changing widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.style to 4 makes it noticeably wider, enough so I can click in it, and it even seems that if the cursor slips off it when I drag it up and down it stays active - in other words, the cursor focus doesn't automatically change to whatever window is underneath Firefox. I might try other values a bit because I wouldn't mind it being even a bit wider, but this is a huge improvement!
I have a fairly new Windows computer (came with Windows 11).
This is a very annoying issue that does not seem to happen with my older Windows 10 computer. The vertical scroll bars are nearly unusable.
Has there been an update to fix this? The previous comment in the threat is from June 2022.
@cpzilliacus: Please read my post from 03-27-2023 12:07 PM. This makes Firefox act as i used to do with visible scrollbars.
Scrollbar way too narrow. Pyramid at top and bottom way too small.
The Scrollbar is way too narrow. The Pyramid at top and bottom way too small. Really difficult on some websites to navigate on the page. Please make these larger. Have a setting where you can choose the size of these items.

No brothers and sisters no one prefers slim bars unless they are using a touch enabled device. I have been in purgatory here trying to do my work. So I found the issue. In Windows go to settings. Then Search "Scroll". Under "Accessibility", under "Visual Effects", under "Always show scroll bars" turn that on. This will stop your scroll bar disappearing so that you have to fiddle all over to find it. "Transparency effects" turn that off. "Animation effects" turn that off. This made a huge difference. Scroll bar is now 3 or 4 times the size it was. Presto, now you have a normal scroll bar again. Dear Mozilla designers, I feel you bro. But never again. Just tell that manager the people say no to discrete sexy scroll bars and yest to recognizable grey rectangles that are available and dependable and accessible. Yeah team!
