*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1052936 ***

The ugliness is beyond comprehension. Someone is sadistically toying around with our poor eyes and this is a rather unpleasant feeling.
Before you fix something, that thing needs to be broken in the first place, right ? Well done then.
It's unfortunate the person who did this change didn't put his efforts on fixing bug #762349 instead.
What's the next step ? Shall we try removing the orange border and keep only the white colour ?

  Percentage bars are ugly

Status in software-properties package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The percentage bars showing progress are orange background with a
  white centre and black text.

  * The black text is unreadable on orange
  * The white centre of the scroll bar looks strange, like the progress bar has had the middle hollowed out

  To reproduce

  Open software properties
  Toggle the Source code option in the first tab
  Press close button
  At next dialog, choose reload
  Expand twisty to show details of the software update.

  See screenshot

  I'd expect the text to be readable white on solid orange or black on
  solid white.
