It's BACK - Processing Request Hang

Cannot capture the PROCESSING REQUEST notice but it is BACK after 2 new releases / it is the notice that appears in the bottom right or left corner that displays the status of the page loading (Waiting for Bing.com / waiting for cache / displays the HTTPS address - that area). On other pages it shows the PROCESSING REQUEST for a millisecond and then proceeds / but on Facebook it will HANG at the PROCESSING REQUEST status until I either re-click the link or go to another page and then back to Facebook.
Went away but has returned with the latest release of the Brave browser. HELP.

Hope that this explains it better.

Additional Information:

I was having the same issue and thanks to /u/Byggpemis on reddit I’ve figured it out. My detailed post is here:

The TL:DR is that if a book mark has HTTP instead of HTTPS and an ad/tracking blocking extension was running I’d get “Processing Request”. Disabling the ad/tracking blocking extension would allow the page to load.

Once I changed my bookmarks to HTTPS the issue went away, pages would load with the extensions enabled.

I tried disabling “Upgrade connections to HTTPS” in settings but it made no difference.

I’m going to post this as a new topic using the bug reporting template.

Score one for REMO. In reviewing my Bookmarks I saw that Facebook and EBAY were both shown as HTTP so changed them to HTTPS and NO PROBLEM.

Thank you Remo.
