Perhaps this is not the appropriate forum for this problem but the Debian List has been an invaluable resource over the years. I happen to be a Chemist and although I've been using computers in my work since the 1960's, I am not a computer person, only a user.
I am running Debian Stretch on my main computer. I have an AMDFX-8320 Eight-Core Processor on a ASUS MSAR2.0 Moptherboard and 8GB of running XFCE4. I an encountering a rather odd problem for which I have no explanation.
If I have more that three or four apps open at one time, all of the non-active windows will pop open at random and predictable times with the result that no one window will be useable, unless I close every app that's open.
This performance is rather annoying and rather disruptive. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. -- Stephen P. Molnar, Ph.D. Life is a fuzzy set www.molecular-modeling.net Stochastic and multivariate (614)312-7528(c) Skype: smolnar1
