ModEdit; related ticket: #18050: White screen after Windows or other VM restart

every time I use the restart feature in Windows or the reset button in Virtualbox, a white screen appears in the VM

Same here (latest MacOS host, latest Win10 guest, latest VirtualBox and additions).
Started when turned on 3D & 2D acceleration.
You can fix this turning fullscreen off & on. However white fullscreen window keeps hanging on another MacOS space.

@lardois
No. It's not the same thing. Please take a look at the Known Issues in the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release". You must be seeing the effects of #18205 VM does not refresh, but preview window runs realtime. If you shutdown the VM and change the Graphics Controller to VBoxVGA (VM Settings > Display > Screen), you'll see the issue gone.
Do NOT send me Personal Messages (PMs) for troubleshooting, they are simply deleted.

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
