Screenshot: an almost invisible scroll bar, adjacent to a normal scroll bar

<https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/handbook/book/> for example. For a few
minutes, I was convinced that the scroll bar was entirely missing. 

Eventually, I realised that the bar is present but nearly invisible. 

The bar is (debatably) far too narrow, far too faint (lacking contrast).
Unnecessarily difficult to discover with a pointing device. 

IMHO this is especially troublesome where the faint miniscule bar is adjacent
to a traditional, accessible scroll bar (screenshot attached).
