How to make browser scroll bar always visible?

P: n/a
Hello,

Is there a way to make the browser scroll bar, the one on the right
which makes page go down and up, always visible?

Thanks,
Miguel

body { overflow: scroll; }

This will create a horizontal scroll bar, too, even when not needed.

The scroll bars may look light gray when they are passive (not needed
because the content fits).

And what about using:
html {height:100.1%;}

Is this a good approach?

Thanks,

It doesn't create a scroll bar on Mozilla. On IE, the scroll bar is there
anyway. So what's the point?

Simple,

I am using AJAX ... and sometimes when some content is refreshed the
page becomes shorter which in some cases originates the scroll bar to
appear and disappear making all page to "shake" ...
