10.7: ScrollBar AREA not showing System 10.7
I have been so frustrated with not being able to see the AREA that encloses the scrollbars. So I didn't know if I was really at the top or where to click for a page scroll. After much reading I thought this was a change Apple had made. Until I took a snapshot of the screen and saw that they were really still there.

I discovered that if the Contrast setting under Universal Access is not on Normal, the outline around the scrollbar does not show at all.

[crarko adds: I use an adjusted Contrast so I see the same thing. Not seeing the enclosing area isn't a big deal to me, but this at least explains it.]

What do you mean by "scrollbar area"? A screenshot would be helpful...

I like the Lion scroll bars but hate that they vanish by default. I've got some windows that need scrolling and you can't always tell without the scsroll bars present. Go to System Preferences->General and set Show Scroll Bars to Always and you have the best of all worlds.

Good Luck,
