Runaway memory consumption at launch

I can’t reliably reproduce this issue at this time, but it’s serious when it happens.

Sometimes, when starting the browser, according to Windows it’s consuming over 8gb of memory.
What appears to be happening is it is trying to load all the tabs I have open at once, some of which point to long youtube videos.
It also may be choking my home internet speed when it happens.
On launch, Brave’s main consumption will be approximately 1500mb and will continue to grow without bound, at a rate of approx 1gb every minute or so.

this happens even if only 1 youtube video and another tab have been opened since launch and inspecting the browser’s task manager (shift+esc) it’s not any tab in particular, none using more than 200mb at most, top 5 only over 100mb.
It’s either at Brave’s core or it’s all of them at once.

Tabs open are about 65.

Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.29.79 Chromium: 93.0.4577.63 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
I plan to come back and offer clear steps to reproduce once I am able to.

Disabling all my extensions didn’t seem to help, but after a few restarts in that state it has begun to balance (in windows task manager) at under 1.5gb where it should be.
