    Default Black background at top of iPad Safari screen

    My two lines of icons and addresses at the top of my safari screen suddenly turned black and gray yesterday. It is hard to read that way. I will attempt to add a picture of it. Not sure how to do that.

    Did you hit the button for private? Click on the book marks tab at the bottom. It looks like a Book. Then click on the button that says private it should not be highlighted.

    Sounds like it's on private. You can hit the two squares (New Tab button) and tap the Private button to turn it off

    You're a genius!

    I can't even count the hours I spent looking help with this black top-of-the-screen problem.

    Every suggestion says to go into Safari settings and turn off Private web browsing. Mine was already turned off.

    I tried everything that I could find on the Internet and thankfully found your solution.

    I want to shout it from the trees! This guy knows what he's talking about.



    Thank you.
    Thank you so much.

    I did not spend "hours" but long enough. I have beeb frustrated by "private" for two weeks now. Lots of things did not work as expected.
