Info
A Thunderbird bug on MacOSX corrupts scrollbars in some cases, when scrollbar width is set below 15px. There is no workaround for this yet, so it is recommended to use at least 15px for scrollbar width there.

Version 1.1.1-signed 91.4 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

(new) it-IT locale (thanks to Tokai)

(new) sv-SE locale (thanks to Erik)

(change) improved option windows theme compatibility
-> NewScrollbars styles option window only for default Firefox theme now

(change) many internal changes

(new) experimental support for 'Postbox 3'
-> since this 'software' is based on Thunderbird, NoiaScrollbars should work correctly.

Note:
Experimental 'randomize' settings from v1.0.9pre1 did not make it into this version, because they are still too unstable.
If you want to test them, install v1.0.9pre1 from versions page.

Version 1.0.9pre1 98.2 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

- (new) sv-SE locale (thanks to Erik)

- (new) experimental 'randomize'-options
--> changes happen everytime a tab gets changed: load, update, history back/forward
--> scrollbar isn't always updated correctly and colors may jump from one to another
--> enabling/disabling 'randomize'-options will always need an application restart

- (new) experimental support for 'Postbox 3'
--> since this 'software' is based on Thunderbird, NoiaScrollbars should work correctly.

Version 1.0.8.1-signed 94.5 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

- major cleanup -> reduced filesize
- (new) option to disable scrollbar caps
- (new) help button & settings explanations
- (fix) corrected default color code for customizeable scrollbars (v1)
- (fix) scrollbar settings work fine on MacOSX now *

* Using "customizeable scrollbars v1" and reducing scrollbar size value below 15px can corrupt scrollbar thumbs caps on MacOSX only. It is recommended to use the new "option to disable scrollbar caps" in that case.

Feedback: I need some feedback either the issues with disappearing scrollbars are solved with v1.0.8 or not. With v1.0.7 I could reproduce them on Mac OSX Mountain Lion, but they are gone after installing v1.0.8.

Tested v1.0.8 with Windows 7, Windows XP, Linux Mint, Mac OSX Mountain Lion

Version 1.0.8pre2 97.1 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

- major cleanup -> reduced filesize
- internal changes
- (fix) most scrollbar settings work fine on MacOSX now *

* reducing scrollbar size to lower values than 15px corrupts scrollbar caps on "customizeable scrollbars v1/2" (MacOSX only)

Version 1.0.8pre1 117.0 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

- (new) option to disable scrollbar caps
- corrected default color code for customizeable scrollbars (v1)

Version 1.0.7.1-signed 116.0 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 and later, Thunderbird 10.0 and later

- (new) light & dark gradient for 'customizable v1' scrollbar thumb
- (new) dark gradient for 'customizable v2' scrollbars
- (new) size option for 'customizable v1' scrollbars
- (change) reordered prefwindow gui -> six main settings
- (change) blue color highlighter for active setting(s)
- (change) menulist for predefined scrollbars (13 & 17px, light & dark background)
- (change) random setting only for predefined scrollbars
- (change) 'hide scrollbar buttons' option is only visible for supported settings and gets disabled and becomes hidden for unsupported main settings

Note: Because of many internal changes, all settings have to be (re)set after an upgrade from a prior version.
Selecting any settings from 'predefined' or 'customizable' scrollbars settings group will automatically switch to the corresponding 'main scrollbar setting'.
Example: a predefined scrollbar is active and a user changes the 'customizable scrollbars v1' setting 'size' -> 'main scrollbar setting' switches from 'predefined scrollbars' to 'customizable scrollbars v1'.
