With the style applied

Description:

Firefox 38 destroyed scrollbar visibility. This style attempts to undo damage caused by people demonstrating what can be changed and always without regard to consequences. So yes another thing broken by design can be repaired by customization.

This is a modified http://freestyler.ws/style/126050/minimalist-chrome-inspired-scrollbar-for-firefox (105628) with specific choices of Scrollbar Colors through installation menu, and manually removing the line that hides the scrollbar buttons in order to make all parts visible again. Copied the top few lines from http://freestyler.ws/style/121094/chrome-firefox-opera-scrollbar-custom-colors (114748) so it works on all scrollbars.

Scroll bar thumb distinctly visible at top, middle, and bottom at all angles, and for all scrollbars I checked.

Recommended Companion Styles are listed in Notes of http://freestyler.ws/style/121825/navigation-bar-reduce-height-smaller-back-button (115366).

Notes from testimg:
  • Appears to be working for me, after last change (June 30, 2015), on all webpages, except for my own when they are on a local drive (C: drive).  Once on website they appear too appear properly with darker scrollbars.

You should to add comment and rate the style.
