** Edit, nevermind. I removed a few extensions that I wasn't using much and the issue went away, so it was definitely one of them.


Hello all,
For the last few days application and various right-click context menus keep disappearing and flashing when moused over but if I try and record with Peek or OBS, it stops. As soon as I close either of those applications, it starts again. I used my phone to record it as that was the only way I could capture it, so sorry about the phone quality, apparently it doesn't like 75hz refresh rate.

Here you can see I open the menu, it does the weird thing. I then open OBS, the weird thing stops in the menu, then I close OBS and it starts doing it again. As I mentioned it did the same thing when I tried to record it with Peek (gif recorder).

At first I thought it was just firefox, which is the only place I really noticed it, but then I downloaded KDENLive video editor to make the clip above and it did the same thing in that editor while I was making the clip.

Anyone have any ideas?

Here are my specs:
