    I can't be sure, if I am really missing the point or do only have a different opinion than you, if you don't want to explain yourself...

    Well, explaining in a forum, is not a official bug report to KDE developers.

    I'll see if 5.23.4 is any better and if not will file a bug.

    Just for reference, - regarding KDE and X11 it may bring a noticeable performance and stability improvement to try out EGL instead of GLX. This can be achieved through the "KWIN_OPENGL_INTERFACE=EGL" or the "KWIN_COMPOSE=O2ES" environment variable.

    The first one just switches GLX to EGL, while the other one changes the entire compositing to OpenGL ES 2.0. This is especially for older and weaker hardware recommended but it may limit some graphical effects of some plasma themes. More information can be found here: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=442386
    How can you check what KWin is using currently, GLX or EGL?

    And it's time for KWin to switch to Vulkan / WSI and leave OpenGL / EGL and their bugs behind altogether.

    I wonder if this could help with the problem I have: whenever I visit a web page with a small animation, CPU goes to 30% usage and fans start spining, making a lot of noise. This happens even when I visit a web page and the browser has the spinner in the tab while the web is loading.

    It's an Dell XPS 13 with an Intel Core i7 7th generation, so it's an iGPU. I'm using Ubuntu 21.10 with a Xanmod kernel, but it's been happening since always. I'm also using the Oibaf PPA, just in case it helps, but it doesn't. I'm also using Brave, but it happens also with Chrome.

    Could you please load this URL and tell me if your CPU goes high in our system? https://fontawesome.com/v4.7/examples/#animated

    Thanks!

    And the last line above the example picture say "Note that in Okular this is not on by default; you have to manually hide the menubar first." So you really don't have to do anything.

    miss a simple screen recorder, don't really want to install OBS.
    Thanks for the tip on QMPlay2. Just installed it and runs great out of the box. I've never been able to get SMPLAYER to work and I've been participating in bugs, sending back trace info, etc., I either get a black window or a endless spinning pinwheel. I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for SMPLAYER to work, it's been over a year at least. Best to find an app that works and just switch. The other app that works with no fuss is celluloid. mpv also works.
