    why is the Unity default scroll bar still "white on white" after almost 3 years?

    who actually thinks this is a suitable theme?

    i remember this back in 12.04 when Unity layout started and of coarse to change it requires a bunch of backdoor searching

    It has never been white on white on my system. It has always been orange on white.

    One of the first things I do when installing Ubuntu is remove those silly hidden scrollbars. I can't get on with them at all!

    well i just fresh installed 14.04 after using Debian 7.4 on a brand new HDD so i had literally no left over settings and its white on slightly off-white

    the only online solutions ive seen pertain to the GNOME GUI, for which theres a Tweak tool in the repos that i see specifically address this, but the Unity tweak tool doesnt, nor does the Compiz Settings, the only thing i have been able to do is get rid of the annoying pop-up scrollbar thing so now every window has a proper scroll bar, there are a few rather lengthy sets of terminal codes that claim to change the color but i'd prefer to not go down that road again and have Unity crash or break and wind up having to reinstall and get everything right again
