Graphical problems with inputs/textareas

I've recently noticed that input fields or textareas on websites are not behaving as expected and they get this default Windows button sort of look. You can see what happens in the screenshots below.
The Opera version is 56.0.3051.36 and it's running on Windows 10. There are no plugins or any special addons installed in the browser and this behavior happens on any website. Since it looks kind of like a graphical glitch, it may be worth mentioning that the graphics card used is Intel HD Graphics 620. In Edge or Firefox, there is no such problem.
Do you know what the problem is and how to fix it?

You can temporaraily disable hardware acceleration (or GPU compositing) - there seems to exist some incompatibility between Intel video and Opera. There are few other threads with similar problem; I'm waiting for fix either.

I mean, honestly, how can something like this even ship?
Oh, have you been involved in software development? I am (not Opera dev of course) - and this is relatively minor issue, affecting mostly only visual appearance.
Often much more serious problems (like corrupting data - or like latest W10 update, which sometimes just deletes user documents) slip into releases. Read dilbert comics strips - you will discover many (sad) truths about software development...
As you see problems on GeForce too, then that is for better - we can hope fix sooner

@donq Yes I am, working in a very big company in fact ... and user interface is one of the most important things of any product, so how this could not receive the utmost amount of testing is beyond me, especially as this doesn't seem to be a rare issue at all (I have very common hardware).
PS: oh and that's from me as a service developer. For the end user, having "trivial" bugs in the UI/UX can break your product much more than any technical debt or other stupid bugs that will make us cringe as developers.
