Since todays set of updates for openSUSE Leap 42.3, which seems to have

The same issue happens for Firefox. If started within the first five
minutes after log-in the window will come up, but it won't load any tabs
and I can't interact with it. Once roughly five minutes have passed I
can start it and it works as usual.

I have now also tried this with a different user and IceWM. Same behaviour
as described shows for Firefox and Gimp. Also, while IceWM seems to work
fine the logout won't work.

Kind Regards,

I have firefox started as part of my saved plasma5 session. I've just
updated and restarted and everything is functioning normally. I've got
intel integrated graphics, maybe it's something related to your graphics?

I have NVIDIA. But as the NVIDIA driver didn't change and e.g. Steam works
perfectly even before Firefox and plasmashell come up it think the graphics
driver is unrelated.

Today I actually logged in before getting the kids to back, and when I came
back plasmashell had actually come up fully. So it seems it doesn't get stuck
permanently, but kick-starting seems to shorten the cycle.

Kind Regards,
