This is the exact same issue I've been having.

I have this issue with three Chromium based browsers; Google Chrome,
Brave and the new Ms Edge.

There is no reason to not have access to the field you are working
with. Simply issue the command NVDA key f5 and the page will
refresh. When you alt tab away, then alt tab back, you are refreshing
the page in the browse mode buffer. That is exactly what NVDA key f5
does, but much more conveniently.

I think you are, indeed, on the edit box. Try this.

Press nvda plus space bar to turn on browse mode, then type the
information you want in the edit box.

I have the same issue on several sites' login screens and the above
works for me every time.

Just now reading this topic. This is also occurring for me, and it
started with the update to 2019.03.01. A great example in Chrome is

"Reply" to respond to a tweet, the edit box doesn't show up until I
switch tabs away from the page, then switch back.
