Application menu foreground uses panel settings, background follows widget style

Description of problem:
The application menu of LXQt takes foreground and background colors for the active item from different settings, which can easily lead to unreadable text. The user may not even realize where the colors come from, as the menu has no color settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right click on the panel
2. Select "Configure panel"
3. Set foreground to black and background to light gray.
4. From the menu, open Preferences->Appearance.
5. Set Widget Style to Windows
6. Activate the main menu once again
The active entry text is black on dark blue, so it's hard to read. See the screenshot.
The active entry should be readable.
I believe the menu should follow the widget style. The panel settings only have two colors, foreground and background. It's not enough to describe a menu, which has active and inactive entries.
For the GTK widget style, the menu even uses the gradient from the style settings. With all that careful styling, using the primitive panel settings for the active entry foreground appears to be a bug.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 23 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
