@Fannste94,
Can you try disabling Hardware Acceleration in settings to see if this resolves the issue?

You’ll find this in Settings --> Additional Settings --> System --> Hardware Acceleration

It’s the same



@Fannste94,
Can you try creating a new test profile and check to see if the resource usage is high when only the new profile window is open as well?

It’s the same with the testing profile


@Fannste94,
You need to have only the testing profile window open. If you successfully created a new profile, it should not have any extensions installed on it.

I don’t know, I closed the first window

And that is the only window open at this time? If so, can you please close any open task manager windows, wait a few moments, then re-open task manager and see if the other extensions are still showing here?

Here.

Can you switch profiles within Brave and remove those extensions in the other profile @Fannste94

You mean to remove extensions from the normal profile?
