In default/light mode, we support using the system Highlight colour as the background colour for selected Urlbar results. In Dark Mode it is always blue.

This is intentional from what I remember. Goes back to bug 1453722, I think. However, we only do this when explicitly selecting the dark theme in Firefox, not when using system dark mode. I'd be okay with dropping this behavior.

I opted to remove this colour altogether instead of adding branching logic for the legacy Urlbar and the search bar. The legacy Urlbar is being replaced and this patch will land in the same version, and the search bar should support system Highlight colours as well.
