New tab: Can't type anything in address bar until new tab is fully load and ready

Description of the issue:
Can’t type anything in address bar until new tab is fully load and ready. This delay may take up to 5 seconds. If you type anything during this delay the outcome will be gibberish mix of typed in characters.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Launch Brave
  2. Press + icon or CMD + T to open a new tab
  3. Start typing new address or new search term in address bar.

Actual Result:
Nothing changing in address bar for a few seconds. After that delay everything you typed becomes gibberish.

Expected Result:
A new tab should be opened without any delays and you should be able to type address or query in address bar immediately.

Reproduces how often:

Brave Version:
1.8.86 Chromium: 81.0.4044.129, (64-bit)

Reproducible on current live release (yes/no):

Additional information:
I’m using macOS Mojave v 10.14.6
I already disabled extensions, cleared cache and cookie, disabled Brave reward, turned everything off in new tab settings. Nothing helped.

In the latest v 1.8.95 Chromium: 81.0.4044.138 the issue still exist.


Sorry guys, but it’s ridiculous to release 2 updates and leave unfixed this crucial issue. Brave browser is unuseless now. Switching back to Google Chrome.
