I cannot reproduce, are you still having this issue?

Yes, unfortunately, I am. Also after a purge and reinstall.

Strangely, on one of my desktop (also arch linux) the problem has vanished. On one desktop and my laptop (both arch linux) the problem persists. So perhaps this isn't really a bug but a local problem. Very weird though.

Are all those systems up-to-date? And freshly booted?
Comment by Peter (pvo) - Monday, 15 July 2019, 12:45 GMT
Indeed they are.

I think this issue should be reported against upstream electron. The only remaining idea I have is that this could be an issue of electron/chromium with some hardware like the GPU, but anyway I’m not going to be able to debug this further.

Ok, I'll make a report there. Thanks for taking the time to look into this.
