Bug Description

Platform: Calibre 6.7
OS: Windows 10

For epub files/books, when using the E-book viewer and the active color scheme is one that has a non-white background, like "Black" or "Sepia Dark", or a custom scheme that you have created with a black or other dark background color, if you then click "Show book metadata" button, the color scheme changes to light grey background, and the metadata comments always appear with a white background with light grey text [which is hard to see], instead of the current dark mode color scheme.
When you click "X" to close book metadata view, the color scheme goes back to the dark scheme
Not conducive for night reading, when you do not want that bright screen.
See attached PDF of screen captures showing what the viewer looks like, before, during, and after viewing book metadata.
