Recently (after recent updates) I noticed that I am seeing some freezing.
1- Boot up desktop PC with GeForce GTX 750 card, 32 GB of RAM and an Intel Core i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz CPU.
2- Everything loads fine. Let PC sit for a few minutes just in case. Then try to launch Applications menu - five second or more delay. Type text into Applications menu - 7 to 10 second delay. Right click anywhere in Firefox - 10 second delay. So then I tried epiphany - right clicking works great, yet launching the epiphany settings/etc has that same delay.
3- Launch a keyboard launcher (previously closed) like synapse. Apps launch right away. Launch Chrome, terminal, Files browser - zero delays. Works great.
4 - Tried this with htop and glances running - nothing spiking or showing up that seemed odd. Nothing standing out in the logs, either.
So here's the tltr.
Ran updates, menu, Firefox right clicking all have delay - Chrome, synapse, terminal, Files do not. It's not hardware as it's replicatable and persistent only with some elements of the desktop.
Any way I can narrow down what the cause is? Tried multiple kernels and don't believe it's the video card.
