RStudio goes blank in PopOS (Ubuntu) Linux

Hi all,

I have had this issue with my RStudio not-quite-crashing, but going blank on PopOS Linux. I can be working in an RStudio window, and it suddenly goes completely blank and I can't close it. It doesn't seem to be specifically related to any package, as it happens between different projects, but it does seem to happen mostly when I'm interacting with things, and not in the middle of long processes.

This is how it looks.

I switched to "Software rendering", and it happens much less frequently. But it still happens.

I end up having a little graveyard of broken RStudio windows that I throw onto one of my desktops. But I would really love not to have to do this. Any suggestions would be thoroughly appreciated!

Thanks so much in advance!

RStudio version: 1.3.959

R version: 4.0.3 (though I had this issue on the previous version too)
