Actually this is not a Bug of Firefox but of the Ayanata Scrollbar so it should be fixed there and not here.

It looks like something that should be fixed in Firefox (and Thunderbird), just as the similar bug 636564 on OS X is being fixed in Firefox.
Reporter: please change the Product field to "Core", the Component field to "Widget: Gtk", the Hardware field to "All", and the Branch field to "Trunk". Thanks!
Changes Alex Jordan requested have been made, except for "Widget: Gtk" as it is not an option on the component dropdown.
Component: Toolbars and Customization → Widget: Gtk
Product: Firefox → Core
Hardware: x86_64 → All
Version: 7 Branch → Trunk
Almost a year since the last post, using firefox 30; no overlay-scrollbars :( Was there any more progress on this issue?

Ubuntu has dropped support for these scrollbars
Thanks for the info.

>>7 Not necessarily so. Experience has taught me that FOSS is riddled with duplication of effort; that a problem may be solved directly or indirectly without anyone being informed; and that bug reports are, most of the time, a last resort for lost hopes. >>8 Clarification: Ubuntu has dropped support for these scrollbars because they expect the GNOME overlay-scrollbars to be implemented. Is that going to happen?
I believe they did drop the Ayanata scrollbar for the Gnome scrollbar in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus. I read that somewhere, but now I fail to find any article on the subject on the web. I am using now using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus and the scrollbars are different than the old ones. As the moment of this writing, I cannot test Firefox and check its behavior under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus.
