Since a few days my tooltips in Ubuntu are broken. Sometimes they work but most of the time, they look like this:

Broken tooltip in Chrome

Broken tooltip in PhpStorm

I couldn't find anything on this issue online. I haven't done anything related to upgrading or video card drivers and it worked flawlessly before.

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 (5.3.0-26-generic #28~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP) on an old iMac with a Radeon HD 6730M/6770M/7690M XT.

    You haven't given any details (ie. what kernel/software stack you are using? 18.04.3? with HWE, non-HWE, what video driver you are using? what screen hardware you have etc), but I suspect it's radeon and it maybe related to bugs.launchpad.net/fedora/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/… but without any specifics, that's guess only.
