Chromium-based browsers flicker for a split second after maximizing

It’s like the browser settles into the display for a moment. This happens on Chromium, Brave and Vivaldi. Doesn’t happen on Firefox, Midori and Konqueror. I’m on XFCE.

I want to stress that it’s not a serious problem, I’m mostly just being curious. Perhaps someone’s encountered this issue before. Otherwise - no need to go out of your way to help me.

Afraid not. I’ve just been using a different browser.
