The same too-small scrollbars are in Mozilla Thunderbird too.
I don't know how/why this is not considered a bug or at least a regression.
Thunderbird and Firefox used to be usable, and now they are both more difficult
to use. Other apps on the same system/desktop don't have the problem.

Firefox doesn't use overlay scrollbars
Status in Mozilla Firefox:

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: firefox
The Firefox 4 browser in 11.04 doesn't use Unitys scrollbars (the light ones
with the up/down button showing as soon as you move the mouse pointer over it).
Instead, it uses standard scrollbars.
I believe this is an inconsistency in the UI, as other programs (e.g.
Nautilus) show them correctly.
