New Revision: 17785

Log:
firefox-49.0 : scrollbars are again missing their sliders, but only in a system 
built for 7.10, a system from early August with gtk+-3.20.6 has them working 
fine. Fun.

+        On systems with the package versions in BLFS-7.10, if firefox is built
+        with gtk+-3 the scrollbar(s) are styled as if for gtk+-2, with arrows 
at
