Missing scroll bar in "HTTP history" window

I have came across this problem few days ago. I am not sure is it because of too many entries in the history. It is quite hassle for me to use to arrow to scroll back and check on some entries. Are there any ways for me to get the scroll bar back?

This appears to be an isolated problem resulting from a bug in the Swing Nimbus look-and-feel on some versions of Java. You can switch your look-and-feel (to e.g. metal) at Options / Display / User interface.

It seem that now on new version of Java the problem is on all system. A fix it's appreciated, the others looks are ugly! Maurizio

Hopefully Java will get it fixed in an update soon.

The same problem started happening to me after updating to Java 8u65. I came here searching for an answer. Guess I'll have switch over to use the Metal UI. You don't realize how much you need a working scroll bar until it's gone :-[

^THIS. the metal theme is for people who hate their eyes.
