Display glitch around application windows

My laptop has intel/nvidia gpu. But I don’t have any nvidia drivers, open source or binary, installed. I’m running 100% off of intel GPU only. After the last major update I notice the below glitch time to time.

$ inxi -Fauxi                                                                                              ✔ ▓▒░

This black border should actually be a shadow. It seems to have something to do with the 3D effects, but I can’t give you a general solution. In any case, a black bar appears when the OpenGL effects are disabled.

Try deleting the shader cache. Should be here:

Thanks for the reply. But that didn’t seem to have helped. Just noticed that it happens with Firefox’s windows only.

Firefox → about:support → Refresh Firefox

It’s been two weeks since I refreshed firefox and the issue hasn’t come back yet.
