The value editor for columns when using dark mode on MacOS has no contrast difference to differentiate the text from the background, making it incredibly hard to read.

How to repeat:
1. Right-click a column with a value
2. Select "Edit Value in Editor"
3. Select the "Text" or "JSON" tab

Suggested fix:
Whiten the text in dark mode to make it leggible.

The text on the left panel where Management, Instance, performance and schema options are displayed does not display correctly.  The font appears smeared and there is black font on a dark grade which is hard to read. 

In addition:
- When altering a table, the apply / revert buttons are white font on very light gray (hard to read)
- Other parts of the lower part of screen the text is invisible
