[Bug 1742282] [NEW] application bar flickers and system pauses


Public bug reported:

First screen that reported say systems was an AMD, but I have an Intel

When I go the task bar, the display flickers, and it is difficult to
start programs.  once they are started for example firefox, I can use
firefox without issue.

I think the upload was attached but I am not sure.  My apologies  if it
is not attached,  I am switching to Ubuntu from another distribution and
it is a fairly large difference in look and feel.
