[Note] GNOME shell gets slower

System: Ubuntu 20.04

GNOME gets slower as I leave the computer on for more than a few days and keep using it -- drop down menu gets affected especially slow.  Seems like some menus are ok though.  And overall computer performance gets slower also.

Login out-back in makes little better, but not so much.  Eventually GUI becomes unusable and have to restart.

I did some googling and seems it is a known issue but happens to others in different situations.

There is no fix for this yet.  

If that happens, the remedy is restarting gnome-shell.  

ALT-F2 and then type "r".
