Shorten the chain on the flapper as short as possible and still allow it to function, and try that to see if it helps solve the problem.
Sometimes it's just the little things.
Good Luck!

YOu don't want the water refilling the tank spattering over the flapper, that will force the flapper closed too early.

Fixing this can be tricky and require some makeshift baffle.
