The Snap package of Firefox 59 has wider scrollbars for me on Ubuntu
17.10. Might be worth checking out if you struggle to interact with the
narrow scrollbars.

> sudo snap install firefox

  Scrollbars are tiny in Firefox (since FF 52)

Status in firefox package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  == Update 2018-02-27: While this report was created for Firefox 52
  under Ubuntu 16.10, it is still valid for all newer Firefox
  version/Ubuntu releases. ==

  In Firefox 52, the size of scrollbars has become smaller so that it is
  really tiny and hard to grab by the mouse. For me, this is a usability

  The scrollbars were considerably bigger in Firefox 51 and previous
  releases. To illustrate this, I have attached two screeenshots for
  comparision between Firefox 51 and 52.

  While other GTK3-applications (e.g. Gedit) also have very slim
  scrollbars, they on the other hand have a mechanismn that makes their
  scrollbars broaden automatically when you move the mouse over them, so
  grabbing them isn't an issue. If the same would be possible in
  Firefox, this would of course be also an acceptable resolution.

  Kind regards,
