Not sure if there's a connection to this problem but I'm using the proprietary nvidia-driver.

There's been a long history of fedora and those drivers fighting with eachother. It doesn't sounds like an app-level problem.

The nouveau drivers are pretty slick these days, give those a try and see if they work.

Unfortunatly, that's not an option the nouveau-drivers don't work properly with my graphics card. But thank you anyway.
