I am using Synaptic 0.84.2 in Mate Desktop 1.16.2. I chose a dark theme which is more appropriate for my eyes.

Surprisingly, the package descriptions in Synaptic are black in white!

I am attaching 3 screenshots:

1. colors, as Mate's file manager caja shows things

2. colors in Firefox (the dark brown BG is in Firefox settings, but the input and textarea are from the Mate theme)

3. colors in Synaptic, which are wrong, but only in the package descriptions. The other parts of the window are as expected.
