Pop-up window random glitch

Why does this happen with pop-up windows sometimes? This is just one instance of this occurance, it occurs randomly in other places too. Some pop-up windows are alright and others are messed up like this. Totally ruins the functionality and usability of some options. Is there any way to fix this?

This is actually the third thread to note this Graphics glitch on Menu popups.

Are you using Radeon?

yes i'm using the radeos vega 8 integrated GPU on my ryzen system

Ok, can you post the terminal output of

apt show xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu

One thing you might try is editing your grub file:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Arrow key down to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
and add the parameter AMD_IOMMU so that it looks exactly like:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash AMD_IOMMU"

Tap ctrl+x to exit, then the y key to say yes to save, then the enter key to save the current configuration and close.
The terminal will revert to normal. Now, run

sudo update-grub

Reboot and test...

this is the result of the first command

I tried all the steps here, but sadly the problem is still there

Ok, please restore the Grub file to just "quiet splash", then run sudo update-grub again.
I am looking over your output and I see you are on version 19. I am on version 22.
So, let's try to upgrade that.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade
