BUG: White Flash on New Window (and other cases) - Health Issue!

This is a health issue!

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open a New Window

Actual Result
A full screen white flash occurs. https://youtu.be/FqWDgXv9npw

Expected result:
No white flash, ie No content is drawn until content is known, OR the placeholder color is not white but matches chosen brave theme (IE dark mode).

Reproduces how often:

Version 1.16.68 Chromium: 86.0.4240.111 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Brave has full screen white content flashes on various actions. Most obvious is opening a new window. This is a health issue for those of us sensitive to light flashes. Chromium browsers, include Chrome itself, always struggle with this. Vivaldi has solved it, but Vivaldi is slow and closed source. I’d like to switch to Brave but this must be addressed.

New users can’t upload. Oh boy. Well here is a youtube video:

Above template refers to opening a new window, but note this flash occurs in additional situations:

  • Re-opening a previously closed tab
  • Tab switching to a hibernated tab (a tab that has not been viewed in some time and left memory)
