Issue 928378: Bookmark Folders and Find in Page have the same background and foreground colors when using Windows 10 Dark Mode

Reported by, Feb 4

Issue description

UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3693.0 Safari/537.36

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Change Windows 10 app mode from Light to Dark.

2a. Open a Bookmark
3a. It's difficult to read. Foreground is black. Background is dark gray.

2b. Ctrl-F
3b. type text
4b. It's completely unreadable.

What is the expected behavior?
the foreground and background to be different colors

What went wrong?
The foreground and background are the same color.

Did this work before? Yes 

Chrome version: 74.0.3693.0  Channel: canary
OS Version: 10.0
Flash Version: 

Windows 10 -> Settings -> Personalization -> Colors -> Choose your default app mode -> Dark

This causes Bookmarks folders to have a dark background, but it does not give them white text.

This causes Find in Page to have white text, but it does not give it a dark background.

Add kColorId_EnabledMenuItemForegroundColor to the Common Theme Aura Dark Mode List

Menus on Windows use the Aura colors.

Route Dark Mode Windows Colors through GetAuraColor()

Win32 system colors currently don't support Dark Mode. As a result,
fallback on the Aura colors. Inverted color schemes can be ignored here
as it's only true when Chrome is running on a high-contrast AND when
the relative luminance of COLOR_WINDOWTEXT is greater than COLOR_WINDOW
(e.g. white on black), which is basically like dark mode.

Issue 929047 has been merged into this issue.
Labels: Needs-Feedback
Tried testing the issue on the reported chrome version #74.0.3693.0 and latest chrome #74.0.3699.0 by following below steps.

Unable to achieve dark mode with the setting "Windows 10 -> Settings -> Personalization -> Colors -> Choose your default app mode -> Dark". Hence, launched chrome through the terminal with "--force-dark-mode".
Able to reproduce the issue on the reported chrome version(#74.0.3693.0) and fix on latest M-74(74.0.3699.0) by following steps as per comment#0 using Window 10.
Attached screenshots for reference.

@Robert Liao: Could you please review attached screenshots and let us know if anything is missed from our end, help us in verifying the fix on latest M-74.
