The NavigationPage background becomes visible when scrolling up. The reporter has provided this basic code (along with screenshots) in that post for reproduction:

using System;
using Xamarin.Forms;
using Xamarin.Forms.PlatformConfiguration.iOSSpecific;

namespace LargeTitlesWithTabs
public class App : Application
public App()
var navigationPage = new Xamarin.Forms.NavigationPage(new HighPage()) 
BackgroundColor = Color.Red 

        var tabs = new TabbedPage();
        MainPage = tabs;

public class HighPage : ContentPage
    public HighPage()
        Title = "Hello World";
        Content = new Xamarin.Forms.ScrollView 
            Content = new BoxView 
                HeightRequest = 2000, 
                WidthRequest = 500, 
                BackgroundColor = Color.Lime

Sample project

I'm also interested in seeing this fixed.  I've added a sample project to replicate the issue.  You can see in the tab page renderer, the Y value of the TabbarFrame is changing when the listview is scrolled.

Also, when you change tabs, the large title size is just copied from the previous tab, so if you've already scrolled the first page and the title is small, than it will be small on the next tab you choose.  Apple specifically says in their documentation that the large title feature was added to differentiate pages when they have simliar scrolling content, so it would be nice if the title size stayed large on a tab switch.
