Corrupt CSS/Virus Creating Screen Blizzard

Description of the issue:

MY browser just started creating screen ‘blizzards’ like old TV effect lots of horizontal lines, as if monitor is broken but it is only happening in browser (can reproduce on Chrome but not Safari so may be Chrome-common elements of Brave).

Not all of tab and not all tabs. Sometimes tab is good for a while then goes bad. Only reliable fail is opening the developer pane which always blows up (see image upload) and makes it pretty hard to look for a common cause.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3.

Open developer tab and/or wait on many windows. Seems to be okay for a while then goes bad. Looks viral.

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):

Expected result:

Normal pages

Reproduces how often:

On developer pane all the time.

Operating System and Brave Version(See the About Brave page in the main menu):

OSX 10.15.4

Brave 1.8.95 Chromium 81.0.4044.138 (OB) (64 Bit)

Additional Information:

That seemed to sort it and makes sense given it looked hardwarey but only in some places. Weird it just started happening but thanks.
