Question: Dark webpage title bar in Safari

The top bar in Safari where the names of open pages are written is dark,...really dark,...so dark I can’t read the titles at all. My daughter’s iPad Air 1 with the same exact iOS is not having this problem, so I know I probably did something to cause this with my fiddling around, but what?! I’ve tried a hard shutdown, but with no joy. Please, somebody, give me back my iPad/Safari joy, because this is driving me insane!

Hello Lacemaker427,

Thanks for reaching out to the Apple Support Communities. I understand you've been seeing a darkened bar when browsing in Safari, and I have some information that may help.

It sounds like you may have Private Browsing mode turned on. Have a look at the article below for some helpful info on how to turn it on and off.

Thank you Alex; apparently you are just the 🍎 wizard I needed to hear from. I thought I must be responsible for my predicament, and I certainly was. I’d better start keeping notes when I’m fiddling around with my Air 2. It certainly is frustrating to be the author of one’s own annoyance. Thanks again!
