Preference menu is black text on black background in Eclipse 20-12 C/C++ IDE

  c++, darkmode, eclipse, java, user-interface

I was setting up a new version of Eclipse for C/C++, version 20-12.
I turn on dark mode and after restarting, I noticed that in the Preferences menu, the text is black and so is the background, meaning that the options are unreadable.

This was the default dark mode. It is the only dark mode option, since the "System" theme option is just another light mode like "light" and "default", despite my Windows system running Dark mode by default. And the color palette options do not change the text in Preferences to another color.

By comparsion, Eclipse for Java, version 20-06, had a default dark mode that did NOT make the Preference menu unreadable: white text on a grey background.

Any way to fix this?
