Take a look at the top of the scrollbar in the screenshot, where the line-
up button should be.  The space for the button is reserved, but the 
button is actually placed down, under the scroller.

That is indeed strange, paulo.  But I've never seen the problem here that 
I know of.  I'm on kde 4.3.1 now, but even back on 4.2.4 (which was when 
I first started using kde4 seriously, tho I've had it installed and 
regularly updated since before the 4.0 release, just couldn't use it due 
to way too many bugs), firefox seemed to work fine.

FWIW, I'm running Gentoo/~amd64, with the kde-testing overlay.
