Linux MATE 19.1, Nvidia graphics. Not at all times, but even selected, no windows content refresh, I have to change the windows size. Happens only in browsers window (Firefow, Chrome, Chromium). By example, it is only when resizing that the previous active tab jump to the real active tab, a conversation tab show the new messages, tab refresh, ..

I was unable to see any parameters triggering this behaviour.

  • What exact model of video card do you have, and which driver (version of xserver-xorg-video-nvidia, if that's the right package name)? Sometimes these things are a bug of a specific video driver with a specific graphics chip. For Chrome, you can try fiddling with likely-looking settings in chrome://flags/ as a temporary workaround until the bug is fixed. – Gilles 'SO- stop being evil' Jul 26 at 8:40
  • I have a graphics GeForce 9600GT, the installed nVidia driver is 340.107. I will check the parameters. – Luc Jul 27 at 6:43
  • I replace the graphics card by a more powerfull one (GeForce GTX 970), and it seems that that solve the problem. – Luc Aug 8 at 7:27
