When I upgraded Eclipse to the latest version I started having this issue seen in the attached screenshot. It used to work fine with 2020-03 but with 2021 versions you cannot read highlighted items in package explorer, Ant, and History views (among others).

The DevStyle people said it was out of their control, it was an Eclipse bug with the latest versions running on Windows 7.

How do I change that background (or foreground) color so that it's not grey on grey?

It's truly awful and I tried it with both 2021-03 and the soon-to-be-release 2021-06 both of quick are ugly like this. It may well be a bug. But then Genuitec should have reported it and they might have helped to fix it. That being said, even without this installed, the built-in dark theme is also unusable with the same problem on Windows 7 for me...

I created a bug report against the Eclipse UI, hopefully they can fix this or give us a work around.
