Hi @Arentcha, thanks for writing in and welcome to Community.

@steeven can you test this out? I don’t think we’ve seen this one yet.

When you say “test this out,” what should I do? Thanks for getting back to me.

Not you, sorry – my colleague @steeven will be the one testing this :slight_smile:

Oh haha! Thank you. Appreciate it.

I think this is a known issue. easy way to reproduce the issue is set device to dark and then change the theme to light on browser the top bar becomes invisible until you close the settings page. I’ll have an issue logged for this and share here soon

Issue logged please track it here
