Under the Highlighter tab, click the button "Choose Colour for:" and select the display color for the item shown in the button below it (example: "Python Keywords"). For some items, you can select a foreground color and a background color.

Idle user configuration files are stored under the user home directory in folder ".idlerc". If your configuration is not saved properly, that would explain why the color is not being kept.
