I've read a few older articles that say colored scrollbar attributes aren't recognised by Netscape or Firefox.
Is there a cross browser compatible way of doing this?

No, and itís good that it isnít. Changing the built-in user interface is not recommended for accessibility reasons and itís just amateur.

After reading that article, I think you may has misunderstood what I want to do. I do not wish to create different shaped or unobvious scroolbars - I'd just like them to be the standard scrolbar, but in colors that suit my website theme - as in the examples of good scrollbars that article gave.
Here's an example - http://www.harmonyhollow.net/cool_web_scrollbars.shtml
I think it's completely obvious to the user that the scrollbar is there, even though it's a different color.

As I said: No, there isn’t.
There is a creative workaround but its not perfect:

To change the colors of the scrollbars in Firefox, Netscape, and Flock browsers you have to replace the images they use. This can only be done on one's own computer.
