My problem is mostly noticeable with Chromium and Firefox, however it's also happened to Konsole.

With no discernable pattern, applications stop showing updated rendering. The application keeps running as usual, for example playing music, or executing rendering in the background. However, I don't _see_ any updates, unless I alt-tab, to force a re-render. (I believe also things like resizing also works).

Everytime I need to close the application and start it up again.

Sometimes it happens once a week, lately it's been hourly.

I've switched from using my built in Intel GPU to a discrete Nvidia one with the proprietary driver, and that didn't help, so it doesn't appear to be a driver issue.

Running stable plasma 5 as desktop.

I think it may be a kwin + compositing problem. I've disabled compositing for now, and haven't seen the problem in a couple of hours.
