When adding a fill to a text frame in Adobe Illustrator and subsequently adding a drop shadow, the fill color disappears. This has been consistently repeateble and was not true in older version of Illustrator.  Currently running Illustrator 24.1.3 on MacOS 10.15.5.

I assume from your screenshot that you want the drop shadow applied to the type, not the frame. I was surprised to find that I could replicate the disappearance of the fill. This seems like a bit of a workaround, but does this sort of thing fulfill your needs?

Try to select the text frame border with the Direct Selection tool (A) and apply the dropshadow to the fill.
