Yes that sounds about right probably. It'll take more than 30 minutes as I need to
do a fresh back and a fresh reinstall, but that could probably be a good way to fix
the problem since I seem to be the only one affected by it.

One more thing, shot in the dark, you may want to try is check the selinux labels on
the system

As root issue the command

fixfiles check /home


fixfiles check /     (this will result in warning and other bits of no consequence so
that'll have to be sorted.

or you can

fixfiles onboot    and then just reboot to relabel the entire file systems 

And then see if the second user you created is any better.

A bit of updates: I tried using a USB key I had with Fedora 27 installer and see a mix of similar issues. Thunderbird does exactly the same, Nautilus however does not open fullscreen (nor does Evolution). So a fresh install seems to clear some of the issues but not all. A new user might do the same, haven't had time to do what you recommended above.

I'll probably do a fresh install when I have a bit of time ahead of me, as this release was upgraded from F26.

Thank you.
