    It's not the most devastating thing, but my Finder bar at the top of the screen sometimes goes black. Thus, it's impossible to see the words and symbols or time. I can click on it and find the pulldowns, but it's nonsense to have to do.

    Usually it is white on start-up and after a sleep in the day I will get the computer awakening to find the bar changed. Just another sad Snow Leopard glitch.

    Anyone have any idea how to correct it? Terminal>killall Finder doesn't help.

    Maybe a System User Interface issue. I've seen that tied to the Menu Bar in other posts from professional techs. Move the plist to your Desktop, then Restart.

    On trackpad, swipe up with four fingers to Mission Control and back again restored it to normal.

    If I had to guess, I'd bet you have a menu bar app that isn't behaving very well. Do you have lots of menu bar apps?

    I know this sounds dumb, but try switching dark mode on then off, see if that helps.
