Assuming you are talking about GTK-based applications (and I think Mozilla apps are that), then edit this file.  On my Fedora 29 system:

===> ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css  Add these lines:

.scrollbar, scrollbar { 
   -GtkScrollbar-has-backward-stepper: true; 
   -GtkScrollbar-has-forward-stepper: true; 

Restart the apps and the arrows should appear.  They are small!  I suspect more editing of the .css file can make them larger, but I have not managed to find the exact entry.

There is also a way to keep the scroll bars from disappearing when you mouse away from them.  

===> /etc/environment  Add this line:


You have to logout/login to make this take effect.

And last - If slider warping really bothers you (it does me!), you can change it with this edit:

===> ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini


With this setting, clicking the the scroll bar above or below the handle moves one page instead of warping to the relative position in the document.
