I am running KDE 5.8.3 on an AMD64 system. Recently I have noticed that Firefox, Thunderbird, and other Gnome based programs are taking around 10 seconds to respond to each menu click.

I don't have a lot of Gnome specific programs on my system but at least the following have a problem:
Firefox
Thunderbird
gaupol
Shotwell
nvidia-settings


KDE Plasma version 5.8.3
KDE Frameworks Version 5.29.0
Qt Version 5.7.2
Kernel 4.4.39-gentoo
OS 64 bit



As you can imagine, a large part of my system is painfully hard to use.

I don't know how to troubleshoot this and would like your advice.

emerge --info follows:

Are you, by chance, using the Intel video driver? If so, check this post from when I worked on a client's machine running Arch Linux:

Thanks for answering, but no, I'm using the NVidia driver.

I ran Thunderbird and Firefox under XFCE and the 10 second delay was gone!

I didn't try hardware acceleration after that.

Thank you for reminding me how to troubleshoot.
