Why do you think the menus should be white? It looks like we use the OS's styling. I expect this changed when we switched to GTK3.
Do you see the same menu styling with the Default theme applied?

Are other applications' menus (that use the awesome wm's theme) dark with light (grey/white) text by default?

Any Firefox theme, I assume you mean? Including the default?

A regression window would still be really helpful.

After creating a .config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini with 

  [Settings]
  gtk-theme-name= Mint-X

it works again.

No, there aren't other applications using awesome wm's theme (besides the launcher menu but that one uses a different dark color than seen in my screenshot).

Any FF theme including the default.

Excuse my ignorance, because I don't run this windowmanager, but what colors do other applications use for their menus, then?

From looking around the internet, it seems like this still ends up depending on GTK configuration, and you would need to configure this manually (viz. https://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Customizing_GTK_Apps ).

If gtk is providing us stupid values (e.g. black background + black text) then I'm not really sure what we can do about this...
This issue is reproducible also in Firefox 43.0a1 (2015-08-19) and Firefox 42.0a2 (2015-08-19) using the Default theme.

Here is the regression window:

I think this is essentially just wontfix/invalid, but maybe Karl can weigh in and say if there's something that either the theme or the GTK code needs to be doing differently?

Summary: [Ubuntu] Several menus/submenus are black using Dev Edition theme → [Ubuntu] Several menus/submenus are black
Attachment 8649183 [details] seems to indicate a bug when Firefox is used with one theme, which is similar but not the same as bug 1187203.  But that is very different from the screenshots in comment 0.  It would be helpful to file a separate bug in Widget: Gtk re Attachment 8649183 [details] and identify the GTK theme that was in use.

Re the issue reported in comment 0, it is not necessarily a bug that popup menus look different to menubar menus (though I don't recall whether the widget code supports that distinction yet), but it is a bug that the submenus don't match their parent menus.  I don't know what is causing that bug, but I suspect this report is in the correct component.
