    Question Is it possible to change the color of (I do not know what it's called)

    Is it possible to change the color of the rectangle that moves on the right side of the screen?
    When moving down or up on the web page

    I do not see anything
    I have to move with the mouse cursor to the right side and then it sticks out and it has a light gray color and it's hard for me to see it

    I think that might be a browser thing if your using Google Chrome, you can change your theme is should get darker depending on what theme you choose

    What Web browser are you using?

    I would recommend doing a Google search to find more information on how to set the different themes for Firefox I'm sure there's a settings tab for that browser

    in the mean time this should help with the different theses that's are available

    Firefox themes
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

    The themes are add-ons I believe and you should be able to install them with just a click

    Here is the help page from Mozilla

    There is this add-on https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...oiascrollbars/

    but note from that page that from November 2017 with a change in Firefox this might no longer work.

    Don't you have a mouse with scroll?

    Looks like OP has an issue with the scrollbar in Firefox which is now a gtk3 application.

    I'm attaching three images.

    Ambiance-pre is with the mouse pointer not over the scrollbar region. The scrollbar thumb is a thin sliver.
    Ambiance-hover is with the mouse pointer (now not visible) over the scrollbar. The scrollbar thumb is now clear.
    Adwaita has the scrollbar thumb clearly visible even though the mouse pointer isn't over the scrollbar region. When the mouse pointer is over the scrollbar region, the scrollbar thumb turns a nice shade of blue.

    OP could consider using the Adwaita theme instead of Ambiance.

    If OP is feeling adventurous enough, it's possible to hack the gtk-widgets.css file in the theme's folder to get a permanent broad scrollbar thumb.

    I'm assuming the theme is Ambiance which is the default in Ubuntu.

    Copy the Ambiance folder from /usr/share/themes over to ~/.themes and name it MyAmbiance so you should now have ~/.themes/MyAmbiance. Step down to the gtk-3.0 folder in which there's gtk-widgets.css. Make a backup of that file. Now, open the file using gedit --- you don't need sudo --- and move down to where you'll see
    Code:
    /*************
     * scrollbar *
     *************/
    Then, slowly delete all content until you come to the next section:
    Code:
    /*******************
     * scrolled window *
     *******************/
    In place of what you've deleted, add
    Code:
    .scrollbar {
        -GtkScrollbar-has-backward-stepper: 0;
        -GtkScrollbar-has-forward-stepper: 0;
        -GtkScrollbar-trough-border: 0;
        -GtkScrollbar-min-slider-length: 31;
        -GtkRange-slider-width: 10;
    
        background-color: @scrollbar_track_color;
        background-image: none;
        background-size: 0;
        border: none;
        border-radius: 0;
    }
    
    .scrollbar.overlay-indicator {
        background-color: transparent;
    }
    
    .scrollbar:hover,
    .scrollbar.dragging {
        background-color: @scrollbar_track_color;
    }
    
    .scrollbar:hover:backdrop,
    .scrollbar.dragging:backdrop {
        background-color: @backdrop_selected_bg_color;
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider {
        background-color: alpha(@selected_bg_color, 0.8);
        border-radius: 1px;
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider:hover {
        background-color: alpha(@selected_bg_color, 0.85);
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider:active {
        background-color: @selected_bg_color;
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider:backdrop {
        background-color: alpha(@backdrop_filling_bg, 0.8);
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider:hover:backdrop {
        background-color: alpha(@backdrop_filling_bg, 0.85);
    }
    
    .scrollbar.slider:active:backdrop {
        background-color: @backdrop_filling_bg;
    }
    Save the file and close the editor.

    Use your distro's method (Unity tweak tool or whatever that is) to change to another theme, say, Radiance. Then switch back to MyAmbiance. This step may not even be needed. The next time you open any gtk3 application, including Firefox, you should see permanently visible scrollbar thumbs.
