GTK dialog

When adding a folder in VS code file chooser dialog pops up or when uploading an attachment for this bug report via firefox browser. The icons in that dialog are barely visible. I am attaching the screenshot regarding the same.

Can confirm this bug.
Comment 2 Nate Graham 2022-04-27 04:17:14 UTC
Can also confirm.
Comment 3 Artem Grinev 2022-06-19 13:22:02 UTC
Adwaita also doesn't handle them correctly but Breeze-Dark icons work fine. So it seems it's just a lack of recoloring symbolic icons mechanism in FileChooser's TreeView component. I'm not sure if it's themeable so I don't know if it can be fixed from our side...

Sounds like no. Can you file a bug report upstream in GTK and link it here?
