Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop freezes after opening IntelliJ PHPStorm or WebStorm twice

Hi! Just installed Ubuntu 18.04 and looks great, and as crazy as it sounds, after installing IntelliJ PHPStorm and WebStorm I can open one app (ie: WebStorm), but if I try to open the second app (ie: PHPStorm), or try to close and reopen the same app (ie: WebStorm) the desktop hangs up!

I can move the mouse but the desktop gets freezed! Can't open anything, can't switch windows, nothing!

I have a GeForce GTX660TI so I have installed nvidia 390 drivers from graphics PPA and it didn't solved the issue.

If I install the snap, it works just fine, both apps WS and PS...

Weird... Can you check if the issue persist when using a different JDK (oracle) to run the IDEs? See https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206544879-Selecting-the-JDK-version-the-IDE-will-run-under

Honestly, I'd suggest collecting the system logs and asking questions on Ubuntu forums...
