Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Load any page.
- Scroll, or enter data on text fields, or do anything.
- Periodically the Brave Browser Helper will take 100% cpu and a “beach ball” is displayed.
- In the course of entering this issue, it has happened 4 times, with the browser becoming unresponsive to text entry, scrolling, any interaction for 15-25 seconds.
This is not loading a page or using the network at all. Well, I guess with this page it is doing all sorts of fancy network access. But this occurs on other pages that are completely static. Closing a tab can result in a hang.
Do not peg the CPU and become unresponsive.
Brave Version( check
Brave is up to date
Version 1.1.23 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Install of Chrome on the same machine does not exhibit this behavior.
I’ve uninstalled Brave on all devices, and reinstalled, and the behavior is the same on all MacOS installs.
