Description of the issue:
I launch Brave stable, browser freezes solid before it can even show the New Tab page.
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):
- Launch brave.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Need to force quit. CPU becomes begs
To be able to use the browser
Reproduces how often:
Every launch. I have uninstalled and reinstalled from the latest stable on the website.
Latest stable from website.
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):
Yes? The dev version works ok. But stable no
So after using Brave stable all day (6+ hours), while I was busy working in a different application having not touched brave at all in ten minutes, suddenly my CPU pegged over 100% from brave. I could not do anything with the application and force quit. When I relaunched all of my previous tabs were gone. However even the “New Tab” page did not load before the browser once again pegged at over 100% CPU. I uninstalled (deleted from Applications) and re-downloaded the browser and copied from the new DMG from the site. Launching the new version also pegged CPU at 100%.
I had an old copy of Brave dev that launched and worked, I then updated brave dev to latest dev build and it continued to work. But I cannot launch Brave stable without CPU spiking and locking up the system.
