Screenshot showing a wrongly rendered menu bar and right tool bar
With high-contrast-mode or black high-contrast-theming (with e.g. high-contrast-#1 theme) the menu bar and the right tool bar are rendered wrongly and are rendered black on black.
Is this enabled: Tools - Options - LibO - View - Use OpenGL for all rendering?
If yes, what if you disable it?
Set to NEEDINFO.
Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.
OpenGL was not switched on!
And switching OpenGL on didn't change a thing!
But ... from my experience in UI development it would surprise me to make really a difference, because the used colors are defined at the level of device context usage, no matter if WGL DC or WIN32 DC!
If the UI would have rendered differently, severe bugs would be the reason, wouldn't it?
I get white on black with high-contrast 1 Windows theme.
Win 7 Pro 64-bit, Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
Build ID: 89f508ef3ecebd2cfb8e1def0f0ba9a803b88a6d
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Windows 6.1; UI Render: default;
Locale: fi-FI (fi_FI)
I tried again today at my office workstation, which behaves a bit different based on Windows 7 Enterprise (SP1).
Here the menu is white on black, but the right tool bar is still rendered incorrectly.

2016-04-06 - new screenshot of Writer
I created this screenshot on my office workstation running Windows 7 Enterprise instead of Windows 7 Professional.
From my experience high-contrast-mode is not behaving the same here and at home.
The screenshot of Writer attached today was created with LibreOffice 220.127.116.11, while the bug got created for LibreOffice 18.104.22.168.
Sorry about that, I do confirm the sidebar thing (already in 4.3).
i have the feeling this issue might be fixed.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?

Thanks for the advise to test again.
I tested on Win10Pro (high-contrast-mode enabled) with LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 and
The menu is still black, active sub menus are black on violet.
The toolbar on the right is black, too.
Two screenshots will follow as attachments.

Screenshot of the Writer with black menu bar and right side bar (LibreOffcie 188.8.131.52) in high-contrast-mode
I tested with LibreOffce 184.108.40.206 the current state of high-contrast-mode support and found still the same issues with a black menu bar and a black right side bar.
Additionally the color used for hovered menu items has still an insufficient contrast to the used font/foreground color.
BTW Testing in high-contrast-mode is not that difficult! Press LeftAlt+LeftShift+PrintScr to toggle the high-contrast-mode with its default or last used high-contrast-theme/design.
It is even important how an application behaves, if the high-contrast-mode changes during the runtime!
BTW I use now Windows 10 Pro, not Windows 7 Pro anymore and have still the same issues.

Now the sidebar deck icons stay invisible, but menu bar colour has changed to "gray text on gray background" as reported in bug 124672.
I tested with all Win 10 high contrast themes. The theme High contrast #2 shows green text for menus. High contrast white shows black text for menus, but Sidebar icons are still invisible.
