Browser Start up Lags when Developer Mode Is Enabled

Description of the issue:

I have a developer mode extension enabled (Bypass Paywalls). In the previous versions of Brave, I had no problems with this other than the annoying “disable developer mode” popup.

In the newest version of Brave, however, when reopening the browser, it takes a full 10-15 seconds of load time before it even displays the “disable developer mode” popup. In this load time, the browser seems entirely frozen; it is impossible to do anything except wait to dismiss the popup.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Enable developer mode
  2. Load an unpacked extension
  3. Restart the browser

Expected result:

Brave Version: Version 1.8.86
