Web Browser(s) flickering when game/program with borderless windowed is open.

Go to solution Solved by CommanderAlex,

This is a known issue currently with the browsers and Nvidia drivers.

So this has been happening since I got my new PC built (Ryzen 5 5600X & Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC) and has finally got on my nerves. Basically whenever I have a game opened with borderless windowed enabled (doesn't happen with fullscreen) I will get flickering on any type of web browser (Edge, Firefox and Chrome) every few seconds, it is sort of random, but usually happens with inputs. Non-surprisingly disabling hardware acceleration in the browser 'fixes' the issue, but I'm not taking that as a fix since it's quite an important feature for websites like Twitch. I've had no problems or any sorts in the games themselves (no artifacts, flickering etc) so I really don't think it's the GPU itself. I found a reddit thread with what looks to be the same issue so I don't think I am alone.

Thanks heaps, surprised this hasn't come up in my searches. I'll see if the workaround fixes it.

No problem!!! The only fix I could think of is reverting back to a driver before the issue has been found.

No problem!!! I'm not really sure what multiplane overlay is, though it seems related to basically the overlay of applications on Windows 10 for this specific issue, think of applications and GUIs.
