    I've noticed in Firefox and Chrome that the scroll bars act/look differently than in Safari and the Apple programs. They're a more lighter grey, they're boxed in by the old, thin, white scroll box, and they never disappear. Is there anything I can do to make them normal, or is this because Firefox and Chrome don't fully support Lion yet?

    I don't know about forcing a browser to have them, but chrome's current developer version has proper lion support (native scrollbars and full screen support) so it'll be in the general version soon.

    I'm not so sure what mozilla are doing though, their nightly version of firefox 9 still has no lion features added in.

    I have the same issue in Chrome - the scrollbar is just a vertical line, with no indicator visible, even though my System Prefs are set to always show scrollbar. This has been reported in other forums. Quote:

    "Chrome Version : 15.0.854.0 (Official Build 96901) dev

    What steps will reproduce the problem?
    1. Updated to latest Chrome version on Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1

    What is the expected result?
    Page scrollbars to work as expected

    What happens instead?
    Page scrollbar is just a grey area with the width of scrollbar, but no scrollbar graphic is rendered inside. Scrolling the page is still functioning properly, just no graphics."

    Note: i am running developer version, but no updates aee available as yet.

    Thanks for mentioning that! I had the same problem and have been dealing with it while constantly checking for updates to the dev build. I also hope they fix the problem that occurs when making more than one chrome window while in full screen mode.

    I am still having other problems with Chrome - many graphic intensive pages give me the "Kill" message, where Firefox or Safari render them just fine. I am really surprised they are so slow to update Chrome; they are usually so on the ball with this.

    Try using Chrome Canary, some of the problems you guys addressed have already been taken care of ;)

    I thought of the Canary build, but is it not more unstable than their Beta or Dev versions?

    Well, yes, but I only suggested it so you could see that some stuff people are demanding are already on the way :D

    Thanks for that. I just discovered another bug. Chrome is set as my default browser. Under SL, when clicking on a link in an email, the page would open as it should, in Chrome. With Lion, clicking on a link does not produce this result at all. The only way I can maintain this function is by setting Safari or Firefox as the default browser.:(
