"From what I can tell, any time the display driver restarts - be it because you've upgraded it, because you've toggled a feature or because it crashed and restarted itself - the JDownloader2 UI stops updating correctly. The entire thing basically goes black, only updating elements that are "activated" afterwards.

This, rather understandably, makes it hard - though not impossible - to navigate the UI.

The attached screenshot shows the effect as it is following restoring the UI from being minimized. The visible elements are the graph (which updates automatically), the scroll bar (not sure why that's visible if I'm honest), the top three packages which are visible as a result of having clicked on them, and a couple of headings and menu buttons I'd dragged the mouse over. This is as the result of disabling NVidia's 3D Vision feature.

All tabs are equally affected by the issue, with the same means to restore the visibility of individual elements.

At present, the only way I've found to remedy this is to restart JDownloader. "
