So, with the inane (sorry, my opinion) new naming conventions Adobe has adopted for Lr...how can I successfully search for threads in this forum about Lr Classic CC specifically? I keep getting threads on CC or on Classic or on  the older pre-renaming CC or on either/any one but not on the topic! Driving me crazy!

I'm actually looking for info about the panels and filmstrip going black when I change to the Develop Module. 

Mac El Capitan 10.11.6
Lr Classic CC 7.0.1, no updates showing in the Creative Cloud App


Rant on the naming: Why did Adobe use CC to begin with. None of their apps were in the cloud. Is Illustrator CC now Illustration Classic CC? Why not? What about InDesign and Premiere etc.?

If you had to rename Mobile, why not Lr Anywhere or Lr Everywhere?

"And how can we search for 'Lightroom Classic' (ugh) tutorials on the web and include older 'Lightroom' (as it was properly called) items but not include the new cloudy "Lightroom"

Type the search terms into the search box at: https://helpx.adobe.com/support/lightroom.html . Then when the results pop up, check the Photoshop Lightroom Classic CC box.  If you don't see the product listed, type "lightroom" in the Product Lookup box.  Not very convenient, and the search results aren't very good.
