User Help for Mozilla Firefox

Using CSS to alter the appearance of the scrollbars is not supported; it alters the appearance of the browser UI elements and for that reason its doubtful it will ever be supported.
As for the Nero site: No, they are not using CSS. They are using a header in a META to tell the browser the web page is not compatible with MS Themes:
Basically this means Mozilla developers have implemented this functionality "innovated" by Microsoft:
I imagine one reason that Mozilla developers support this is because usually the FORM controls will try to use the operating system controls, which like the scroll bar may be themed by the operating system itself. This means on the Nero page, you are not seeing a scrollbar designed by Nero, but the scrollbar is it was designed by the Firefox theme designer (vs the Windows theme desginer).
Someone over at The Shodown Forum said the Nero site plays with the chrome files:
That's funny. Exactly how is the Nero site going to "play with the chrome files"? Those snippets are from the CSS files that ship with the browser, and that is loaded in XUL, and the Nero site is not using XUL at all, nor would the site be able to alter the files on your system, so "plays with the chrome files" is not accurate. Especially when you consider that loading the Nero site in Internet Explorer causes the same results! On Windows XP, with the Luna theme (default WinXP theme), the scrollbar is baby blue with "ridges" middle. When loading the Nero site, IE 6 shows the old-style scrollbar ("Classic" WinXP theme, looks like Win95/Win2k).
What they probably mean to say is that if the browser theme wants to, it can pick up the theme style from Windows. But if the web page says not to use the Windows theme style, it won't be used.
Hmm, well I don't know. It doesn't really matter that much anyway.
This thread is over four years old. I doubt that anyone is still watching. Locking.
Think for yourself. Otherwise you have to believe what other people tell you.
A society based on individualism is an oxymoron. || Freedom is at first the freedom to starve.
