You already covered the two big reasons that frame edges aren't visible, so how about View > Overprint Preview? Is that turned on?
Can you be more specific please. I have the exact same problem. The ToolBox just went "blind" , only the text box is "active", the rest are "not active". Please show a picture since I have the program in another language

This does not sound like this same issue that was described by gamu_mac, who simply reported that the frame edges were not longer visible.
A screen shot from you would be helpful here because I don't know what "the toolbox just went 'blind'" means. If the toolbox is no longer visible, try:
- Window > Tools and/or
- Window > Workspace > Essentials, followed by Window > Workspace > Reset Essentials
Or, if the software is misbehaving, trash your preferences: Troubleshooting 101: Replace, or "trash" your InDesign preferences
Overprint preview was on. I apologize for the late response. A day later there was an upgrade on InDesign from Adobe CC and the problem was fixed. I turn off and on viewing my frames by using the keystrokes command, option, shift, Y. That is working again.
Great. I couldn't think of any other reason why the frame edges would be hidden besides Overprint Preview being on. Glad you are back on track.
