    Firefox won't accept my xubuntu theme to widen vertical scroll

    I am running Xubuntu 18.04 LTS. I recently did a normal weekly update and now Firefox has a very narrow vertical scrollbar. Very difficult to use. I am running the Clearlooks-Phenix 7.0.1 theme. This theme has a wider blue scrollbar, but Fire fox won't seem to use it. However, firefox does use the window title bar. Is there anyway to make firefox use the Clearlooks-Phenix scroll bar????????????

    If I can't make firefox use the Clearlooks-Phenix scroll bar, is there any way to make the firefox scroll bar wider and give it a custom color????

    Thanks.

    You can try a Firefox addon like "Custom Scrollbars" and see it offers you something wider than the Firefox default.

    Are you aware that flavors of Ubuntu only come with three years of supported life (five years applies to Ubuntu Desktop, Ubuntu Server but not flavors), so you're asking about a release that is past it's EOL.

    https://fridge.ubuntu.com/2020/08/14...-lts-released/ or a UWN - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuWeekly...pport_Statuses highlights the EOL notices for Lubuntu/Ubuntu-MATE/Kubuntu/Ubuntu-Budgie. Xubuntu didn't announce EOL but refer https://xubuntu.org/release/18-04/ you'll see it's 29 April 2021.

    You can use `ubuntu-support-status` to view the status for your actual installed system, ie. what Ubuntu packages are still receiving security patches/updates, and which do not, to access for your self how safe you really are (eg. `firefox` is a browser that still gets updates).
