Description of the issue:
Getting a lot of lag in browser responsiveness, when using ‘Tab to Search,’ in my primary Brave profile. Host CPU spikes during this lag time, but the Brave ‘Task Manager’ just shows ‘Browser’ consuming CPU.
Issue still occurs with all extensions disabled, as well as in a Private window. Issue does NOT occur in other profiles.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Use they ‘keyword’ for any defined search engine, e.g., ‘:g’ for Google, or anything else that’s defined in search engines.
- Enter a bunch of text to search with, using that engine
- Observe severe lag
There should be no delays in displaying keyboard output, browser temporarily freezing, etc.
Brave Version( check
Understanding that it seems to be something specific to this browser profile, I’m pretty sure (although I have no evidence, I just don’t remember ever having this issue before) the problem did not exist prior to 1.30.86. However I can’t really be certain of that, I just feel like I would have noticed it.
Do I have any viable paths for troubleshooting this aside from having to try migrating everything into a new profile? (And then hoping it doesn’t happen there too?)
