Pulled from bug 37480 comment 17.
5) low: i think a scrollbar for the palette color list would be suitable, as presently there isnt any indication that their are more colors in the list than what is currently being seen. And if i select a color at the bottom of the scrolled list, when i reopen the popup, it wont show it selected.

hi Jay, here's my screenshot from 220.127.116.11.alpha0+

I see a scrollbar on the right, where is the bug you are reporting?
Maybe this bug is limited to linux then (attachment 107210 [details]).
looks like Linux only indeed
Yes this seems to be a linux only issue and will happen in some themes. It happens in clearlooks, crux, high contrast, industrial, oxygen-gtk, raleigh, redmond, and xfce themes on linux mint 17 xfce.

As per comment 5, confirmed. Status set to NEW. Component set to UI.
Just confirmed on Windows 7 that the color picker doesnt have scrollbars for me.

Well the scrollbars are now appearing on Windows and Linux for me. I believe Matthew might have fixed this issue as we had talked about this issue on IRC a few days back.

The only thing that needs to be adjusted is the right padding between the scrollbar and the edge of the drop down, so that it is the same as the left side.
On linux, there is an 8 pixel padding on the left and a 2 pixel padding on the right. On Windows there is 7 pixels on the left and 3 pixels on the right. So if an addition 5 pixels can be added to the right. That would be the best possible fix.
After the fix to bug 85416, the scrollbars have disappeared again.

Its not showing for me on Linux Mint 13 Mate [Clearlooks] or Windows 7 [Basic]. On Windows 7, the scrollbar does appear (though half cut) in Classic and it shows fine in Aero.
Try to fix
Juergen Funk committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Fix fdo#84574 - COLOR PICKER: Palette color list should have scrollbar
It will be available in 4.4.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Okay scrollbar are now appearing in Windows 7 Classic, but the dialog still needs 5 pixels added to it width so that it has the same padding on its right and left.
@Jay: Technically that's another bug, can you please file a new bug for that?

And what does that have anything to do with Jürgen’s scrollbar work? The padding was uneven before his commit. Please don’t reopen bugs like this, I think you were already told.
That said, moving this to VERIFIED.
My apologize. I had told tommy that we could fix the right padding issue with this bug and the bottom padding issue with the button bug. So i've opened a new bug for both padding issues (bug 86159).
