Firefox 57+: scrollbar tweaks with userChrome.js

----------------------------------------------------------------

This add-on will stop working when Firefox 57 arrives in November 2017 and Mozilla drops support for XUL / XPCOM / legacy add-ons. It should still work on Firefox 52 ESR until ESR moves to Firefox 60 ESR in 2018 (~Q3).

Waterfox and Basilisk browsers are based on Firefox and will keep legacy add-on support.

Thunderbird 57+: scrollbar tweaks with CustomizeMyBird 1.2+ add-on
(The Thunderbird part of this add-on is now part of CustomizeMyBird. NewScrollbars won't be updated for Thunderbird 59+).

---------------------------------------------------------------


The "NewScrollbars"-add-on replaces default scrollbars with colorized ones (partly) known from "Noia themes".

Features
- predefined and customizable scrollbar colors, width, background
- works with Firefox and Thunderbird
- colorpicker to style custom scrollbars
- textfield to set background color (hexcode) for custom scrollbars
- option to pick a random scrollbar on startup
- option to hide scrollbars
- options to customize scrollbars background, thumb, buttons, size
- option to make scrollbars transparent
- option to make customizable scrollbars floating scrollbars

This add-on is highly recommended for people, who like to have "high contrast" scrollbars. Colorized scrollbars can be more kindly for eyes.

"NewScrollbars" extension also works with some complete themes.

HideScrollbars
A very small add-on to only remove scrollbars.

Note: Every currently opened website has to be reloaded after every change on this add-ons preference window.

'Zoom' issues
The 'new' scrollbars are images which size gets altered using applications zoom feature like happens with default content images. There is not fix to prevent this from happening, because this is a Firefox/Thunderbird bug, that was and is present since Firefox/Thunderbird appeared and most likely will never get fixed.
Workaround: Go to "View"->"Zoom" and chose to zoom only text, so scrollbars size stays while zooming on a page. All scrollbar-styling add-ons and themes suffer from this problem.

Add-on Compatibility Reporter
