Hidden Background tab in Brave Browser draining all my memory/disk space

  1. Hello,
    I noticed my computer getting really slow, especially when I start brave browser.
    After clearing cache and changing a parameters and rebooting a few times, Nothing changed.

Looking at it closer in the task manager, process screen, there are (19) undertabs for the Brave Browser that are draining memory and disk ressources.

When I close and restart the application, it just opens brave normally ( ony one tab in the Browser) but I have these 19tabs (in the background?) that don’t close and drain all the memory and the disk space…
(I can see that on the task manager)

When I end up Brave browser through the task manager, same result when restarting

And when I try to end the undertabs one at the time in the task manager, they just reappear faster that usual

Expected result:

I would like to get rid of all that and retrieve a clean computer working under normal capacity

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.43.89 Chromium: 105.0.5195.102 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:

I also have redundant ERR_Time_Out and wonder if that’s not related?

Don’t worry, this is normal. On my end, I have 17 Brave processes right now…

Open Brave in incognito mode CTRL+SHIFT+N; Does the issue persist?
