System Information

MultiMC version: 0.5.0

Operating System: macOS

Summary of the issue or suggestion:

It's oddly greyish-brown instead of the expected color.

What should happen:

It looks right.

Suspected cause:

Resetting the default palette, Qt bug.

Additional Info:

This cannot be fully fixed. Only masked away.

Qt bug will have to be filed, because the documentation lies about resetting the palette after setting the style:

When switching application styles, the color palette is set back to the initial colors or the system defaults. This is necessary since certain styles have to adapt the color palette to be fully style-guide compliant.

The palette is never reset.

GH-1790 do not apply system theme on launch if it is selected
This prevents some ugly colors to show up on macOS in most cases.
It still looks ugly right after you switch to the it though.
