Description of the issue:
Starting with Brave 1.5.130, and continuing on 1.5.131, Brave is slow on my phone (device details below), in two specific flows:
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Startup brave after restarting phone or after killing brave.
Expected: (always the case before 1.5.130): shows open tab (almost) instantaneously.
Observed: Shows empty page (not even the ads blocked, https upgrades, etc page, just an empty page) for about 10 seconds before showing the last used tab.
- Whenever opening, from a running brave, a New private tab.
Expected: (always the case before 1.5.130): shows new private tab (almost) instantaneously.
Observed: whatever tab was shown remains shown, there seems to be nothing happening, and after approx. 10 seconds, the new private tab is shown.
Apart from these cases with long delays, the browser is still responsive in all other everyday flows/uses.
For daily use (with a phone I switch off at night), I can learn to live with flow 1, but flow 2 is a major pain for me.

Have tried privacy -> clear browsing data -> advanced -> browsing history + cookies and site data + cached images and file, time range all time.
Have tried Clear cache from within Android Settings, Apps, Brave, Storage&Cache.
Have not yet tried removing and re-installing, I would lose too much information (unless there’s a way to save it?)
If additional information is required, let me know and I’ll try to provide it.
