  • Hi everyone - something weird happening with MacOS.
    Not sure how, but I've enabled something that makes the browser have a reverse high contrast like look.
    I've deleted the cache folder and the Application Support folder, but it doesn't fix the issue.
    Can anyone tell me where else to look?

  • @sydopera You seem to be using a private window, whose colors are those in the image.

    Afraid not - here it is in Non-Private window

    @sydopera You seem to be using a private window, whose colors are those in the image.

    It's like a broken CSS where the background colour of elements has been set to black. And some other weirdness.

    I've deleted the app, the 2 folders that's used on a Mac, but the problem remains.
    It started when I updated to 10.15.4, so it might be an interaction with macOS, but I have another Mac that's also been updated to 10.15.4 and it doesn't have this issue.

  • @leocg I've found the problem.
    It's caused by Hardware Acceleration setting.
    If that is disabled, the rendering goes away.

    I guess it's a bug. Where do I file a bug report for this?

  • @sydopera Help > Report a problem or something like that.
    It would be interesting to see if others confirm the problem first.
