JetBrains Toolbox on CentOS 7 (a VirtualBox VM - host OS Windows 10) - Broken GUI, black screen

I Installed JetBrains Toolbox for the first time in my CentOS 7 development environment (VirtualBox VM in Windows 10 Host OS)

At first when I launched ToolBox all my GUI elements vanished and window borders became black spaces. After several restarts of the VM and starting ToolBox first, I now have the App appearing but its window is completely black, but when I mouse over the blank space the mouse pointer does turn into a hand from time to time. If I minimize the window the title bar disappears, but the black window rectangle remains in place and any apps subsequently started are masked by that space.

Any suggestions?

This is known as VirtualBox issue. Please disable 3D acceleration for the VM and check how this will work.
