Desktop icons appear over windows when unlocking screen

ve flag

I have a laptop running Ubuntu 22.04.1 with the following specifications:

CPU: Intel i7-7700HQ
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile (With nvidia-driver-525)
Kernel: 5.15.0-60-generic
WM: Mutter
Display server: Xorg

All packages have been updated to latest available versions as of 2023/02/13. Occasionally, when I unlock the system from a suspend or screen lock, the desktop icons are displayed over all opened windows, and I am unable to select any open window until I manually Alt+TAB through them. What could be the cause of this issue? Any troubleshooting assistance would be highly welcome. I have not found a method of consistently reproducing this problem.

Edit: I have attached a screenshot of an open firefox window after waking up from suspend.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
