Hmm, I'm not seeing that here using the built-in themes:

  • Default, Dark, and Light: blue border
  • Alpenglow: purple border

Are you using an add-on theme, or could red be a color pulled from your Windows theme by the Default theme? What do you get if you try the Dark theme?

that worked, interesting. After playing around with windows options it seems like the outline is using my system theme color (in this case, red)
