    Default possible to have a transparent scrollbar?

    Ok I would like to change the scrollbar of the Updates div I have on my site. However, I have no idea how to do it lol. I want to make it so all you see is the Up arrow and the down arrow. I always need it to work in both Mozilla and IE. Thanks

    Firefox won't allow you to do anything to the scrollbars since they are supposed to be customized by the user. Changing the colors or making the scrollbars transparent might cause problems for some users. If you really want to do that you will have to use JavaScript to replicate a scrollbar. Take a look at the DD scripts, you might find something:

    Hehe, you're welcome, glad to help you out!

    I know I had the same problem a couple of years ago and I had to resort to a JavaScript scrollbar.
