Description of the issue:
When visiting quite a few pages (not sure if it’s all) on medium.com my computer begins to spin 1 CPU as 100% and the page becomes unresponsive or will not display.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.
Simply visiting one of these pages reproduces the issue reliably on my machine. Here is one such example page: https://medium.com/golangspec/scopes-in-go-a6042bb4298c
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
I’ve seen the issue manifest in a few different ways.
Sometimes the page appears to load correctly, and the CPU usage spikes a few seconds afterward, and I receive the dialog to Wait or Kill page.
Sometimes the page appears to partially load and then gets stuck halfway down.
The other way is that the page does not load at all, and I see the loading icon spin infinitely.
Behavior does not change with shields up or down.
The page will load correctly.
Reproduces how often:
100% of the time on any broken page I find.
