Top bar text is blurry

Bug Description

I had difficulty to quickly read the current time in the top bar. The colon seems a bit glued to the hour number.

Looking closer, the text looks blurry, but on windows title bars, the text is crisp and looks better.

See the attached picture for a comparison. I have one window stuck to the top bar displaying the same text to ease comparison.
