Protections Panel section header colors don't provide enough contrast with high contrast (Windows) and dark OS themes (Linux)

It seems that the color is hardcoded to #737373 assuming a white background when the background is actually OS theme dependent (could even be gray on Linux).

Eric volunteered to take a look at this. Thank you!

Is it possible to have separate settings for only high contrast mode? If so make the section header...
...100% opacity white on dark themes
...100% opacity black on light themes

We're not talking about high contrast mode in the case of Linux. I'm also not sure why we'd de-emphasize this text in some modes but not in others. It would be nice to be conceptually consistent, and in the spirit of bug 1521233 we probably just shouldn't de-emphasize this. Either way I would suggest you don't hardcode this color value at all on Windows and Linux (i.e. use either --panel-disabled-color or the default panel color).
