I had tried disabling hardware aceleration in chrome settings and disabling flash on chrome plugins but still getting this.
I had the same problem and i got to fix it by *opening the terminal *run upgrade *run ¨ sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel * run autoremove and finally reboot
it fixed the flickering and now even the wallpaper changes all normal. no glitches anymore.
Finally with the help of the user 'I just look ilegal' do the purge of the xserver. the steps where:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current sudo prime-select intel sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel sudo apt-get autoremove sudo reboot
