Update 2021/09/08: It made sense to make this comment part of the original post.

  1. Make sure to remove the bracket colorizer extension.
  2. Update VS Code
  3. Open your user settings via CMD (CTRL for non-Mac users) + Shift + P and type settings. The settings JSON file will open. Add the following:
"editor.bracketPairColorization.enabled": true
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

All colors are themeable and up to six colors can be configured.
