    • Same issue. Current tab in Edge turns black on black. Click on the plus sign, add a tab. The tab turns black (dark grey…?) Point at any tab, same thing. Not very useful.
      Tested on a variety of Win 10 installs on many computers with various graphic cards. Same end results. Let’s just say for the purpose of this posting that the default color settings in Win 10 Pro are used (even though it does not matter.)

    • OK, I just tested it on Dell XPS 13 9350 Microsoft Signature Edition. A newly added tab turns black on black. All display settings at default, out of the box. Intel i7, 16G RAM, Win 10 Pro 64 bit, Edge 10586. Display full HD (3200x1800)
      How do I attach a screen shot WITHOUT having to host the image somewhere first?

    • Found a temporary solution at least! Firstly there are two themes. Light and Dark. You will need to change your theme in edge by clicking . . . > Settings > Theme > Light or Dark (which ever is different, although I believe its only the light theme that is effected by this problem). You will need to close the browser and open it again with that theme. And then repeat steps to revert to your original theme. It works for a while but does revert after a while. The dark theme seems to be more stable however. Good luck!
