- GtkFrame widgets have no color. They do not show up at all now. This

- The scroll bar used to be a close match to the GTK3 bar but now it
looks like something from 1997.
- The mouse-over color for GtkCheckBoxes is black. The whole widget and
surrounding area turns black.
- Buttons in Firefox are black (with black text!) until you mouse over.

try searching for a thing on the top-left searchbar
now remove the search from the searchbar (delete it)
click on the GNOME category
it will tell you that there is no results, which is odd because
there are still some results in other categories... this may be caused
because package-kit is searching for literally nothing, as in the query
