Blacked Out Screens on Login / Search Pages

Hey - I have a recurring problem and I'd like to know if anyone else has seen this or found a solution.

On WP8 -- having the issue that on most app log-in screens and may search screens the page is just blacked out so I can't see what I'm doing. Apparently the input fields are still there - sometimes I'm successful in doing it blind by just poking around on the black screen - but I can't do much if I can't see anything. Can't move to a second text box for example.
This happens when I tap on an input field such as "user name" so that I can't get as far as password. Happens in multiple apps - LastPass, Windows Central, sometimes in MS apps. I can't use the search function in Last Pass.

Move to WP10. Seems to have resolved itself. Yay!

Move to WP10 update this week - back to same old problem! :angry: So frustrating. Has anyone encountered this? rebooting doesn't help.

It sounds like you've got some cached pages that have old/stale data.

How did you do your Win10 update, a fresh install?
