Why is the Dropbox tray icon black on Windows 10?

Why is the Dropbox tray icon black on Windows 10?

Recently the Dropbox icon on my Windows 10 machine turned black, it was white before.

As you can see in the image it is barely visible (since I have transparent taskbar) - On a black taskbar it would not appear at all.

Windows 10 v 1803 build 17134.706
Dropbox v71.4.108

I have just spotted the same problem. A black icon doesn't work on a black task bar - looks ridiculous! Please change this back or give an option to have a black or white logo.

Thank you

What is the answer to this question?  How can we make the taskbar icon white, not black?
