Web Part Border Not Showing - SPO

My apologies in advance if there is some other forum I am supposed to use for SPO questions, but I could not find it. I have worked on multiple tenants in SPO and no matter what tenant I am working on, when I select a Web Part to Chrome setting to be Title and Border, the border never shows.  If I use Border Only, it does show.

This behavior appears to be related only to SPO, because every SharePoint 2013 On Premise farm I have worked on does not behave this way.

I have tried to change themes, etc. and nothing works.  I am able to make the borders show if I use CSS in a Script Editor web part, but I want the border to show for only specific web parts, and that would be cumbersome to have CSS that refers to specific web parts, so I would like to avoid it.

Has anyone else experienced this issue and is there a way to fix this behavior?

From your description, when you select a Web Part on SharePoint online to set Chrome to be Title and Border, the border doesn't shows.

I have done a test in a SharePoint online site and I can't reproduce the issue.

Check whether the issue in another page of the same site.

You can use compatibility mode to check whether it works.
Open IE->Tools->Compatibility View Settings

You can also add the site into Trusted sites to check whether it works.. 
Open the IE->Internet Options->Security->Sites->add the site into the Websites.

What's more, you can also use Internet Explorer 10, Internet Explorer 8 to check whether it works.

Here is a similar issue post, you can use as a reference:
