100% CPU LOAD Brave Browser Helper (Renderer) still not fixed. ETA?


Over the past weeks (starting halfway through November 2022), my CPU has been on fire because of the Brave Browser Helper (Renderer) process.

Looking through the topics on the forum, some users have isolated it to certain websites, others have isolated it to the native Brave Blocker / Ad Blocker. I myself was running into 4 different processes running at 100% CPU.

I tried the final solution, turning off the Brave Blocker / Ad Blocker. This works 100%. I will make a video later showing the differences in CPU load. But honestly, this is a really big issue. The native Brave Blocker / Ad Blocker is the only reason why I am using this browser.

Is there any ETA on when this is fixed? Or knowledge about what is causing this problem in the first place?

Kind regards,

It’s funny because after I turned off all native Brave Blockers / Ad Blockers, and the processes stopped going to 100%, I turned the native Brave Blockers / Ad Blockers back on to try and record a video of it happening: turns out, it didn’t.

So it seems, for me at least, that turning off and back on the native Brave Blockers / Ad Blockers solved my issue for now. I will update back here when it starts happening again.
