Okay, I've compiled everything and now it works!

Yes, I've tried to do the same thing on the pacman build + official build on Intel GPU machine and wasn't able to reproduce this bug too so that seems like mesa bug.
On AMD machine tho I'm getting the same issue with both 2.83.1 and 2.90 (official build).
I cannot reproduce the issue using 2.83.1 or 2.90 on Win10.
Operating system: Windows-10-10.0.18362-SP0 64 Bits
Graphics card: GeForce GTX 470/PCIe/SSE2 NVIDIA Corporation 4.5.0 NVIDIA 388.13

I am using the official linux tarball.
2.83.0 hangs on my intel laptop but works well on my nvidia gpu desktop..

Both latest/stable and 2.83lts/stable are the same build (update 39)
snap build was updated to fix a small bug. So installing the updated version would work.
More Info from Testing:
Tried to install the LTS version using Ubuntu Software app and it asked for Snap Classic Confinement. Don't remember exactly what I did after, probably has something to do with Snap library, after that bot LTS and Standart Stable versions started asking fo CLassic Confinement refusing to install. After, installed blender using this line:
$ sudo snap install blender --classic
Tried opening .blend files after and they open without any problems.
Possible solution: Uninstall Blender and run this in terminal: $ sudo snap install blender --classic
Everyone who had this problem, please give feedback if it worked or not.
I re-installed blender using the 2.83 PPA, and the issue no longer occurs.
What information is needed? This is rather stagnant. To be exact Blender always has issues after it updates, previous version projects will always quirk up with new version, and some Blender settings may act weird here and there after those updates.
And since there are 2 versions of Blender 2.83 in Ubuntu Software app, probably needs exact name, the one I am using is latest (Not LTS), don't know about the others. The version is:

I can confirm that downgrading to 2.79 fixes the problem. Will 2.80 be available through apt-get soon? I prefer the new interface, but still want to use the package manger for installs rather than just unzipping a download.
I see that the 2.83 version of blender has a build date of today...is it possible that this was updated on my system with no action from me?
I don't have any other way to reproduce the error, and also no way of knowing what exactly Ubuntu updated. It was a Dell XPS15 specific firmware patch, though. Attached is the system info.
Note: T66722: Blender stuck on default scene if some other app takes focus after double clicking file in Finder
^^^ has been there for a long time. This one, as @Luke Wardensky (cleveroctopus) said has occurred after an ubuntu update.

Adding Linux as @Brent Thurston (pictureboy) reported that this issue also occurs on Linux.

I'm not sure if this is a Blender or Gnome problem, but here's something else @Christian Rauch (christian.rauch) In case you thought it was worth looking into.
Works great! Thanks!

I'm sorry, but this is almost certainly not related to Blender, especially since issue remains even after closing the program (which indicates that the memory leak happens somewhere else, not from memory allocated by Blender or its libraries).

I can confirm this also happens on Windows. I get a red/cyan checkerboard pattern in the upper part of the screen. If there are more 3D views open, and one is in camera view, then the other viewports also get the glitch even if they are not in camera view. Switching to Material Preview and back to solid shading solves the problem.
@Clément Foucault (fclem): Probably again something along the lines of the following?
I can confirm actually
Looks like it may end up like T74243. A Nvidia only, Linux only issue. Will need more investigation to confirm this.
I cannot reproduce on windows.
