User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da-DK; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060601 Firefox/2.0 (Ubuntu-edgy)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da-DK; rv:1.8.1) Gecko/20060601 Firefox/2.0 (Ubuntu-edgy)

I'm using the default skin in FF2 and when I scroll on a webpage with the mouse I experience that the left border of the vertical scroll bar doesn't paint itself before I move the mouse over it.
If I grab the "handle" of the scroll bar with the mouse it doesnt repaint before I let go of it.

BTW. it was hard to get a screenshot of, because it tried to repaint everytime I took screenshots, so I had to be _very_ sneeky.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to your favorite page where scrolling is needed
2.If you have a scroll wheel on your mouse use it to scroll down the page
3.Behold the vertical scroll bar that doesn't refresh unless you bring the mouse over it.

Actual Results:  
Flawed design

Expected Results:  
Brilliant design

I see exactly what you mean. It also does it for the top of a horizontal scrollbar. It's not clear to me if this is a bug or a feature. The line in question is useful to locate the spot you started scrolling from. That comes in handy sometimes. However it is probably a bug because the line repaints if the mouse leaves the scrollbar during a scrollbar drag, which is undesirable from the feature point of view.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Do you still see this problem using Firefox 3.5?  Please update the bug, and close/alter bug if appropriate.

No reply, INCO. Please reopen if you are seeing this in Firefox 3.5.2 or later in Firefox safe mode and a new profile with the latest plugins.
