The Noia themes are all absolutely hideous but the transparent theme looks good. I wish there was a preview (or an interactive/live mockup if a preview isn't possible) so that you know what was happening when configuring your bars.
Firefox only renders/displays/updates scrollbars after a page gets (re)loaded, so there can not be a live preview of your changes.
This add-ons size is less than 90KB. Adding any live mockups / preredered images of countless possible scrollbar variations would not only increase the add-ons size by an unknown factor, but would also require a large amount of additional code without any benefits after configuration.
If you really need a live preview, you can open your library window (bookmarks, history... etc.) and a folder that offers a scrollbar within the library. Most changes inside NewScrollbars add-on go live on that window, after you change something.
It works just fine, and in an instant.
Very good add-on. Thank you!
This add-on + Noia buttons = nice looking Noia theme ^_^
I've been using this add-on for about six months and it's been working flawlessly. Using a relatively bland Mac color theme, the whatever-color-you-want scrollbar stands out for easy mouse grabbing. Short wish list... ability to select scroll direction.
The "Customizable v2" bars allows you to tweak the hover colors as well, which is a big plus. Runs smooth and w/o any issues/bugs on PaleMoon 25.5 running in KDE5 (Linux).
Appreciate the work Aris!
LONG time ago . . . With a sadly gone OS called XP. You could change the scroll bar size in your OS and when you did that; Firefox would be changed too. Them days are long gone. Yet at least I can get a big scroll bar on Firefox with this addon. When I have to load all my addons this is one of the first that I load up.
To me it makes life so much easier to have a thick scroll bar to click on. But what do I know. I thought Steve Jobs was nuts when he said you can use your finger for a stylus.
The add-on description says the zoom issue it's a bug and that the bug was fixed Firefox 33 and I'm using firefox 39 so I thought that it should be ok. Regarding the zoom issue: Cant you make firefox load a new image when page zoom reaches some number or after pressing a button or key? That way the scrollbar will change size but as soon as it hits a very noticeable point it would get replaced with the new image of the appropriate size.
Regarding the customization on the custom v2 you only get the option of circles instead of buttons it could be triangles or squares or stars or hearts also maybe you can put the option for the user to select an image file for the buttons cap slider and background as a custom v3 so the customization can be endless.
Also the transparent setting on the custom v2 it always makes the background black and in this option and the transparent and transparent v2 option there is an outline on the bar slider that looks bad.
Thanks for the add-on and the time you take to read and respond to comments.
> 1. The add-on description says the zoom issue it's a bug and that the bug was fixed Firefox 33 and I'm using firefox 39 so i thought that it should be ok. Regarding that:
The bug with disappearing scrollbars on some zoom levels and the general zoom issue are/were two different things I summarized into one description. Sorry for that.

Something like this is not possible. You can't "detect" the zoom level inside an add-on and even if it would be possible, you can't switch scrollbar appearance without reloading the website.

Squares and circles are what Firefox can change using one value (border radius, it already part of css), but you requesting to use completely different or own images. Something like this is currently not planned, but might be added in the future.

Depends on the OS you are using, transparency may or may not work. That option is mainly for Windows AeroGlass UI on WinVista/7.
Love this extension, but noticed a problem. The Dark theme of the FF developer edition hides the scrollbars in the web developer tools. If you hover your mouse over the scrollbar, then it will display, but you cannot see the scrollbar if you do not hover your mouse over it.
I'm trying to improve scrollbar appearance for developer tools. That area is unfortunately not as customizable as default webpages when using dark theme.
Transparent v1/v2 won't show scroolbars in devtools area.
I love this add-on and have been using 1.2.1 for a long time. However, trying to update to 126.96.36.199 crashes Pale Moon instantly! I've tried this on a 64-bit machine running Win 7, another Win 7 32-bit computer, and another on XP, all with the same results. Seems to work fine on Firefox. ??? 5 stars for the previous version.
UPDATE: The problem evidently had something to do with improperly signed extensions and extension updates from Mozilla. A new 25.3.2 Pale Moon "emergency update" is supposed to fix the problem, though I no longer see 188.8.131.52 on the site. :)
Developers did not update their add-ons. Signing process was performed by Mozilla automatically, but got reverted later because of some problems with older Fx builds.
This is a top add on, and which I think should be the default scrollbar. I missed the superb Noia 4 theme which ceased to be updated due to FF updates breaking it too often, and found the FT DeepDark theme to be the best replacement, except the vertical scrollbar was too dark and hard to see.
But thank God i came across this scroll bar replacement! It is not only improves visibility but it is a work of beauty! I also appreciate those who make such customizations.
I like to make my scrollbars as minimal as possible, and that is the great thing about this extension, it lets you do everything from the fanciest possible to the simplest.
Lots of customisation options, and very easy to use.
Hello, I am a Japanese people. I have a beautiful idea for avoiding a bug of Firefox 32. As you know, Firefox 32 has a critical bug called "Firefox 32 zoom bug with custom scrollbars". It is also called Bug 1066934 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1066934). If you avoid this bug, you can install Firefox 31 ESR.
ハロー、私は地球人です。私は、Firefox 32 のバグの回避に対する美しい考えを持っています。ご存知のとおり、Firefox 32 は「カスタム・スクロール・バー関連の ズーム・バグ」と呼ばれる重大なバグを持っています。それはバグ 1066934 (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1066934) とも呼ばれます。このバグを回避したければ、Firefox 31 ESR をインストールすればよいです。
Make your own customized scrollbars in Firefox. The default scrollbars which Windows 7 delivers are less than optimal, even if you're not color blind. This program fills that gap by adding a simple but quite a powerful option (!) to change that for Firefox.
Great addon, and the FX32 workaround (zoom text only) is appreciated, but it's not enough.
Some people may prefer full page zoom, and the fact that it's also the default mode makes the vast majority of users have it at full-page zoom.
Please try to make it work with that mode too. Thanks.
This is a Mozilla bug affecting all Mozilla products. Nothing add-ons can do about. Only Mozilla can fix this.
I have enjoyed using this addon. It really helps me see, and quickly grab, the scrollbars that are difficult to see when viewing some web pages. However, I think it has developed a bug, or conflict with the latest version of FF, because the handle often disappears.
Also, although I'm not sure whether it's related, every time I opened addons (via Tools), the addons tab and the whole browser would hang and be totally unresponsive. The only way to recover is to forcibly close the browser and start again. This has been resolved since I disabled NewScrollbars today.
Anyway, thank you for creating the addon - I really appreciate it. I hope you are able to get to the bottom of the new problems.
EDIT: Thanks for the quick response. Leaving my review as it is, in case others miss the note on the addon page like I did. Raising my review for 4 to 5 stars accordingly. :)
Please look at the main page. A Firefox bug is affecting all add-ons and themes, which change scrollbars.
Currently only two things can be done:
- set zoom level to 100% and do not zoom anymore
- enable the option to only zoom text (View->Zoom...)
Just realized that I had an option checked that shouldn't have been. All is OK now. Plus, the previous review has been marked for deletion.
Дуже добре зроблено!
Danke, sehr hilfreich, da die Standard Scrollbars, unter Ubuntu zumindest, sehr versteckt und schwer mit der Maus »greifbar« sind.
Und man kann sich Abwechslung selber gestelten !
This extension is just incredible. Finally an extension that replaces the ugly default scrollbar.
I like it. 5 stars.
Features I'd like to see: Background color gradient in Customizable v2 and the option of arrows for the buttons, with color and color gradient still applicable.
It's still five stars, even without those features.
Really not a bad addon ... I made sure to do a "skin" online Adobe PDF Reader ... makes her well ^ ^
The worry is that the horizontal bars do not work at all when the width is less than 11 ... and even 11 precisely area "click" only 1 pixel ... should adjust its is a big concern . I had the same problem with an option to keep the bar above the content in HTML pages.
So I put 4 stars for now ;)
Not every available option works everywhere with all plugins and on all OS. Ecpecially MacOSX likes to break things, but also Adobe plugins.
I believe Adobe controls scrollbar width inside their pdf plugin at least partly.
In full agreement with Tim - No Scrollbars - brilliant, Thank You.
So you might be insterested in this:
