Dark Theme on Window Image bckgrnd turns white

OS -  MacSierra 10.12.3 on iMac 27" 5k retina desktop
Gimp 2.8.14 Mavericks & Yosemite (Update 3 (Sept 15th 2014): A Mac version for
Mavericks and Yosemite of GIMP 2.8.14 has been released)

Issue A.- Every time I open an image from file, the window image background
turns white. The annoying part, if working on different image layers of 14 or
more where you also switch back and forth, each time, I need to tweak the theme
reload (inside Gimp Themes tab)
to get it back, The dark theme is an eye strain and a monitor and monitor energy

Issue B. - If Gimp is up with current project on and you want to include another
from file,
it opens the image by activating another Gimp.app, so you now have 2 Gimp app
icons sitting on the Mac dock. Why is this?

I have been on Gimp since 2013 on Mac Mini at first. This Gimp is stable to me
till I made a mistake on downloading "stable 2.8.20" BY MISTAKE where the
problem with window image background originated. Also, each time Gimp does an
update, I need to do a function re-orientation because of changes and that
includes later subdued tool icon design in the tool box. This cause delays for
me a reason to stay with the latter version mentioned.

Everytime Gimp does an update, does it affect some functions in older versions
too? I hope not and it should be left alone.

Finally, where can I download the unaffected Gimp 2.8.14 Mavericks/Yosemite. Or,
maybe you have a solution to correct the issue of the Windows image background?
Help! Thank you
