Qt/macOS: QComboBox highlight color is wrong
Since updating the macOS builds to Qt 5.12 the highlight color for QComboBox dropdown menus is a light blue instead the expected blue.

This seems to be a Qt bug. I put together a sample app on macOS with just a QComboBox and the highlight color is wrong for that.
The controller profile is a QComboBox with the editable property enabled and probably explains why that has the correct highlight color since it is different from a regular QComboBox.

Note the issue is marked as resolved but has not been actually fixed per linked comment.
Note linked comment mentioning it is present in 5.12 and I can confirm it is still present in 5.12.2

My apologies, I may have misled you with the first link :(. The issue is referring to QListView which is not the same as a QComboBox. From what I can tell, QListView has been fixed in Qt 5.12 (example is Qt Creator) but not QComboBox as of Qt 5.12.2. The comment is simply referring to the use of a deprecated method for QListView but still works as expected for QListView at this time.
The second link is the right one and comments suggests creating a new bug issue.

*because I thought the first link was referring to QComobBox but it wasn't.
Anyhow I filed a bug report on Qt and we can track that https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-75386. That being said, I suppose we won't see this change in Dolphin until they start using 5.12.x instead of 5.12.0 for macOS (based on BuildBot/builds uploaded to the website for macOS)
