bug

Description of the issue:
When you’re trying to open new tab and then fast type some search request, the browser first loads the blank page / new tab page, and then it loads the search request, after 1-3 sec, what is really strange.

Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary):

  1. Have slower than my or equal pc (celeron, 4gb ram 1777mhz, very slow and old&used hdd)
  2. Download one of the available VPN extensions (ProtonVPN, Hotspot Shield VPN, one of other)
  3. Turn on VPN extension for all sites
  4. Open 32+ tabs with or without restarting browser
  5. Open new tab without focusing on it
  6. Focus on the text field
  7. Enter search request
  8. Watch bug

Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Flickering and timer for new page loading/whatever else, may be its just a onChromiumLibraryLoad/onChromiumInstanceInitialization event

Normal and fast loading of web search result

Reproduces how often:
