Does anybody else have the problem that there are no arrows on the scrollbars in SeaMonkey trunk builds?
Or is that just me?
I searched the web, but I didn't turn up any recent reports.

It's both with the Classic and the Modern themes, and it also happens with a fresh profile, so I know it's not something I did to the settings, or the userChrome.css.
Groetjes, Pim

May be due to the GTK Themes you are using as I recall this is a issue on some Linux distros.

Also Gecko 43.0+ requires GTK 3.4+ and not 2.18+

Thanks for your answer. Yes, I've got a problem then; GTK is at v3.0 here. Let's hope it updates before the SeaMonkey release hits rv:43.

I was referring to rv: Gecko version and not SeaMonkey version. The Gecko 43.0 is what Firefox 43.0 uses and for SeaMonkey that would be SM 2.40

I know. It will be a long time before SeaMonkey is at version 43!

As long as we don't miss the chance for a Seamonkey 3.14...

I'm guessing you're on Mint? It's not the GTK version that is the problem here.

The problem is that the guys making the themes are just copying the core stuff off each other and don't understand what they are doing. So, a simple 2 line mistake from years back has just persisted to this day.

The GTK 3.4+ (three.four) requirement has been changed to Gecko 45 (Firefox 45.0) actually. Forgot to update this.

Some gtk themes have dropped the arrows. I guess OP will have to search for a gtk theme that has them.
