Screenshot with the issue

I'm running a dark theme with white labels. The yellow (or red) info bar (message panel above the content) uses the system font setting and shows a white label on yellow background. We should not the system colors when the background has a fix color and make it black by default (or rather dark gray).

That's likely a very simple easyhack. NEEDINFO for the code pointers and other keywords.
Comment 2 jani 2016-11-11 11:45:43 UTC
We no longer use NEEDINFO, the QA team wanted that reserved for other purposes.

And based on the latest discussion, before developers start looking at it, the UX team must decide on the change.

Since no further contribution to the discussion was done I assume all agree with my statement. It's a bug to mix system default and fix defined colors. This particular issue can be solved by setting font color to dark gray for the info bar.
