Responsiveness issues with xfce panel

I have installed latest manjaro xfce few days ago and i’m having some responsiveness issues with it, specially with its panel, when i hit windows key it doesn’t always open up the menu, and it opens like few minutes later on its own, sometimes multimedia keys don’t work to change volume, and other buttons on the panel don’t work on rare occasions.
and firefox crashesh too often.
sorry i’m a newibie when it comes to tehnical issues, I know i should paste some error logs or something but I don’t know where to look.

Here’s a good beginning. :slight_smile:

Unresponsiveness from a fresh installation may be related to limited hardware resources. Let’s check that when you provide your hardware information (see link above).
