Status bar turns white and does not show content behind it

I am trying out AppCompat on Marshmallow. And I want to have a transparent status bar however it turns white. I've tried a couple solutions but they didn't work for me (Transparent status bar not working with windowTranslucentNavigation="false", Lollipop : draw behind statusBar with its color set to transparent). Here's related code.

My styles.xml

<style name="Bacon" parent="Theme.Bacon"/>

<style name="Theme.Bacon" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">
<item name="colorPrimary">@color/theme_primary</item>
<item name="colorPrimaryDark">@color/theme_primary_dark</item>
<item name="colorAccent">@color/theme_accent</item>
<item name="windowActionBar">false</item>
<item name="windowActionBarOverlay">true</item>
<item name="windowNoTitle">true</item>
<item name="android:windowBackground">@color/background_material_light</item>
</style>

<style name="Theme.Bacon.Detail" parent="Bacon"/>


v21

<style name="Bacon" parent="Theme.Bacon">
<item name="android:windowDrawsSystemBarBackgrounds">true</item>
</style>

<style name="Theme.Bacon.Detail" parent="Bacon">
<item name="android:statusBarColor">@android:color/transparent</item>
</style>


Activity

<FrameLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:fitsSystemWindows="true">

<android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
android:id="@+id/pager"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
android:fitsSystemWindows="true" />

</FrameLayout>

android:layout_width="match_parent"

Answer

I fixed my issue by changing my Activity layout from FrameLayout to RelativeLayout. Thanks everybody who tried to help!

<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:background="@android:color/transparent">

    <android.support.v4.view.ViewPager
      android:id="@+id/pager"
      android:layout_width="match_parent"
      android:layout_height="match_parent"
      android:background="@color/theme_primary_dark"
      android:fitsSystemWindows="true" />

</RelativeLayout>

Try hierarchy-viewer or ViewInspector. These tools might help you.
