Just installed brand new version of SS (2.3.0). When i load the admin page, the text titles (Email / Password) are blocked out in black and the error message states that' jQuery is not defined in ../security/login. It's a fresh install with no changed files. Any ideas?

There was a change in 2.3 that uses javascript to focus the system caret on the email field - see for info and a solution to the jQuery issue.

Not sure why they're blacked out though. You got a screenshot?
