Try using the Vivaldi (64bit) browser for a while, use the mouse wheel to
scroll up and down in various sites. i'm only playing with it for reading
newspaper sites like the guardian, telegraph, huffington, metro and some
those sites hate being scrolled via the mouse wheel (though no problem in
other browsers)
If the pages start to flicker when scrolling then exit the browser and
watch the desktop do the same for a while.
Admittedly, vivaldi is a work in progress but i have no idea what to
report as i can't get it to do this every time. Just wish i could record
it to show it happening.

i'm concerned that it affects the desktop after the browser has closed.
using kwin/plasma 5 - latest tumbleweed versions

Tw up-to-date and nvidia 355.11

Dl'd for trial and do not find the problems you cite. Scrolls smoothly,
has caused no crashes after about one hour.

Appears very snappy although the interface is rather different.

i'm using nv.
the problem shows itself with the scroll bouncing back up immediately after
you scrolled down but some of the other tabs are not affected by it. i'm just
wondering if its a dodgy advert on the page as all these newspaper sites are
advert driven.
