Windows 7: The Firefox scrollbar nightmare

The Firefox scrollbar nightmare

I can't guess how much time is wasted and frustation from Firefox's refusal to increase its very tiny, difficult vertical scrollbar.
I've been searching for years trying to find a solution.
I have to contantly go back to the page I was viewing, as the tiny scrollbar kicks me off the page.
This is one of those vexing annoyances that can really get you down.
Thanks for any solution ideas you all might have -- if there are any. ellenc

The width of the scrollbar can be adjusted by editing the userContent.css file. See detailed information here:
UserChrome.css - MozillaZine Knowledge Base

The change to the scrollbar width is specifically discussed here:
How can I increase the width of the scrollbar in FireFox ? ? mozillaZine Forums

I hope this helps!

Thanks ever, ever so much for the scrollbar information. I've been trying to fix this minor but vexing problem for a couple of years. You have a brilliant brain (seriously!). ellenc
