Since I updated Xamarin Forms to latest version (, the detail pages (which are navigation pages) from my master detail, flicker.
Each time I select a different page, the navigation bar disappears and then reappears.
Although when I use PushAsync, the navigationbar stays in place and only the title changes.
I downgraded to Xamarin.Forms version and everything works fine.

Which platform was this happening on? Can you attach a repro? Also, you might want to test it on the latest pre-release since it will be the latest public API set.

I have the same problem, too.
Happens on Android, but I did not tested on other targets.

According to the following posts, it is a problem related to Android:

Already tried XAML Compilation as well, but it did not help.

Please upload a reproduction if you're still experiencing this on the latest stable/prerelease.
