Some of my application windows randomly stop responding during usage. They suddenly just display a static image of the current content, and fail to redraw correctly when resizing or toggling full screen (toggling float does not help either). If I try to restart i3 in place the affected windows simply turn black, and the only solution I’ve found is to kill the program(s)/windows from the terminal with e.g. xkill and start it again. The application themselves don’t seem to crash, as e.g. audio from video playback in Firefox continues. It happens mostly to Firefox, but that is probably because that’s my most used program, and I’ve also experienced it happen to Alacritty, Kitty, Mailspring and Brave. It seems to happen completely random, and sometimes only Firefox is affected, sometimes other apps as well.
I asked about this over at reddit too, without any luck so far:
I recently did a fresh install too, just a couple of days ago, but the problem still persists.
I’m not a super advanced user, and any suggestions or ideas for solutions or debugging is greatly appreciated!
