New Tab Page slow to load since updating to Chromium 84

Description of the issue:

Since updating to Chromium 84 the New Tab Page is taking longer to load than usual.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Open a new tab while the browser is open or
  2. Open the browser with the New Tab Page set to open on start-up

Expected result:

The New Tab Page to open in the same length of time prior to updating to Chromium 84.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.12.114 Chromium: 84.0.4147.135 (Official Build) (64-bit)

I tried reinstalling Brave but to no effect.
I have been using Brave Dev too, and this issue did not occur when updating from Chromium 83 to 84.
