VirtualBox Toolbar not shown on launch

Since upgrading VirtualBox to Version 5.2.18_RPMFusion r123745, the Toolbar in the VirtualBox Manager interface is always closed when launching VirtualBox.

It can be re-opened by right-clicking in the menu bar and selecting "Show Toolbar". It will remain in view until VirtualBox is closed, but again on relaunching, the Toolbar is not shown without following those steps.

Is this a bug? I didn't even realize the Toolbar could be hidden/shown until it disappeared in this latest update.

That is a bug that appeared when distros bumped Qt from 5.10 to 5.11.

It has been reported months ago on Oracles bug tracker.

Workaround: Quitting VirtualBox via File -> Exit or CTRL+Q

Perfect. That bug report describes the problem exactly. And I just confirmed that the workaround works for me.
