Future State UI Worksheet Tab Design
The worksheet tabs located at the bottom of the User Interface for Calc are
poorly rendered and too small to be usable. They interfere with the horizontal
scroll bar so that there is either not enough horizontal real estate for the
tabs, or not enough horizontal real estate for the scroll bar.
Move the worksheet tabs to the top of the UI, following the generally accepted
design practice of placing tabs at the top of a user interface. To improve
usability, make the tabs larger so they are easier to work with. Use a more
pleasing tab design, rather than the crude tiny trapezoidal design used
currently. (Please see a mock-up of this proposal,
With this new approach, the tabs will have more horizontal space; the
horizontal scroll bar will remain at the bottom, but it will utilize the entire
width of the document, as per established user interface design practices.

I had the same problem using Linux/xfce desktop which had the overlay-scrollbar package installed. This package is responsible for drawing just a thin line instead of a scrollbar in all kinds of windows and show a scroll handle only when you move the mouse over it.
After uninstalling this package (together with liboverlay-scrollbar-x.y.z the scrollbar in LibreOffice calc is drawn again in a normal size and the sheet tabs are readable again.
Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
