In newer versions of Firefox, *THEY* have *DARED* to *FORCE* *US* to
*SUFFER* with what *THEY* *FEEL* is a scrollbar (aka the 'Adwaita'
STINKS ON ICE scrollbar)

There are 2 "about:config" settings you need to change. These are
widget.non-native-theme.enabled set this to FALSE widget.content.gtk-theme-override set this to the theme you want FF to
use (like "TraditionalOk")
do this and even across a remote X connection you will see the CORRECT scrollbar appearance.
there are other settings you can tweek if you prefer that FUGLY thing
that PRETENDS to be a scrollbar. Or you can mess with your own themes directly (whatever, now that YOU have CONTROL back!)
yes - this reflects the *ARROGANCE* *OF* *THE* *DEVELOPER* that *FEELS*
that HE KNOWS BEST WHAT *YOU* *NEED*.
but... one thing for sure, FF did NOT remove the ABILITY to customize it
BACK to something REASONABLE. YET, anyway...

Check out the Seamonkey Internet suite, it's like old school netscape, still maintained. You can get noscript legacy and ublock origin for it too. Also there is a nice GTK theme called Raleigh Reloaded, it's like the GTK2 Raleigh theme but it workswith GTK3 as well so it's consistent across programs.
