Brave browser freezes on image paste

THIS IS THE SECOND TIME POSTING IT, AS THE FIRST TIME WAS TOTALLY IGNORED

Description of the issue:
Pasting an image ( into chat, as facebook/whatsapp for browser or anywhere where you can paste an image ) copied on clipboard, will sometimes make the browser freeze.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Copy on clipboard a random image from anywhere.
  2. Try to paste it in a chat in the browser.

Expected result:
The image should be successfully uploaded/pasted into the chat.

Brave Version( check About Brave ):
Version 1.30.89 Chromium: 94.0.4606.81 (Official Build)

Additional Information:
This issue doesn’t happen all the time, but it occurred frequently on both Windows 10 Pro 64bit and MacOS silicon.

Extensions installed:

  • Dark Reader, Honey, Pricey, SetupVPN, Tipli.

Settings different than default:

  • “Use wide address bar” - enabled
  • “Always Show Full URLs” - enabled
  • “Media Router” - enabled
  • “WebTorrent” - disabled
  • “Widevine” - enabled

Hmm I use it like this quite frequently (Win10) and haven’t seen this issue.

Have you tried with extensions disabled, or in a Private window, or a new profile?

I will say that at least 2 of those extensions are quite resource-hungry, not sure about the others; but it could well be related.
