    Hi!, pete1977x,

    Install a program called "Gnome Color Chooser", run it and select the 'Specific' Tab; in the middle on the left [ I forget what it is called] reset the value from 15 to 24, and Click on 'Apply' & Close.

    You can find & install it in Ubuntu Software Center, but make sure you get the right one, there are several with similar names.

    Edit: It used to work, but when I tried to run it to checkthe name of the option, it crashed [ running 12.10 ].

    I removed and re-installed, but it still would not allow me to change Tabs, and would not respond. However, I still have 24 pixel scroll bars!

    Hope you have better luck. Edit2: on the third attempt i got it to run; surprisingly, the option is called: "Scrollbar Width!

    Chao!, bogan.

    They did things differently in those days, apparently!!

    Find it in Ubuntu Software Center and select 'Remove'.

    Did you close Firefox and re-open to see if it changed?

    I do not know of other options.

    Chao!, bogan.
