Toolbars, status bars and sidebar do not show whether they are
checked or not unless you mouse over them, at which point the
radio button idicator shows up temporarily.  In the submens 
toolbars, the checkmarks only show up if you mouse over them.
They will also show up if use arrow through the items on the 
menu.  The same is true for the submenu triangle - it will only
show up if that item has the mouse or keyboard focus.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set colour shceme to "High Contrast Black" in Control Panel > Display >
2. Start FireFox.
3. Do Alt-V to bring up the View menu
4. Use up and down arrow to go through the first couple of menu items, or go
intp the ToolBars menu and browse through that.

Actual Results:  
As noted in the description above, radio button marks, checkmarks and submenu
triangles only appear when the menu item has mouse or keyboard focus.

Expected Results:  
Checkmarks, radio buttons and submenu indicators should 
always be drawn with the foreground colour of the current 
Windows colour scheme.

Accessibility issue.

Oops, this should probably be a dupe of bug 245154 – Black submenu arrow in menus (e.g. View->Toolbars)
