Slow Loading Loop Issue with Brave Browser on Multiple Linux Versions

Description of the issue:
I encountered a strange issue with both Brave Nightly and Brave Browser on Linux Mint 21.2, Ubuntu LTS 22.04, and the latest 23.04. Initially, the browser works perfectly, but upon the second launch, it enters into a lengthy loading loop, taking 10-20 seconds to load and constantly displaying the busy icon. The root cause appears to be related to the “Continue where you left off” option on startup. Disabling this option resolves the issue.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Launch Brave Browser for the first time.
  2. Ensure “Continue where you left off , option is ticked/check mark/enabled”
  3. Use it normally.
  4. Close Brave Browser.
  5. Launch Brave Browser for the second time.

Expected result:
The browser should launch quickly and function normally, even on the second launch.

Brave Version (check About Brave):
Please note that this issue occurs on multiple versions of Brave, including Nightly, Linux Mint 21.2, Ubuntu LTS 22.04, and the latest 23.04.
Installed using linux terminal using curl.

Additional Information:

  1. My system specifications: 64GB RAM, RTX 3090 Ti, and Intel Core i9-12900KS CPU.
  2. The issue is not related to having resource-heavy webpages open; even having a simple page like causes the 10-20 second loading delay.
  3. I have tried enabling hardware acceleration and changing the startup mode to both Power-saving (CPU) and Performance (GPU), but these settings do not resolve the issue.

Is there a way to allocate or dedicate more RAM to the browser, or could there be limitations imposed by the kernel itself that affect this behavior?
