Description of the issue: when opening a new tab, there is painful lag for several seconds before I can input anything in the search field
Steps to Reproduce (add as many as necessary): 1. 2. 3. 1. open new tab. 2. Tab hangs with macOS infamous pinwheel/beach ball running as I wait.
Actual Result (gifs and screenshots are welcome!):
Expected result: I expect a new tab to load like on my Windows 10 workstation in less than one second.
Reproduces how often: Every time I launch a new tab
Brave Version(about:brave): Version 1.1.23 Chromium: 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Reproducible on current live release (yes/no): YES
Additional Information: I have deleted the Preference List, and the BraveSoftware support folder in ~/library/application support/ as per support article per https://community.brave.com/t/re-installed-but-not-opening-macos/96505. I restarted my system, then reinstalled a fresh copy of Brave. Tabs were opening fine until about the fifth one I opened then the problem resumed. Tab lags for several seconds before one can input anything in the search field. Then works fine and is as fast as on any device.
I thought it may be the Google Translate extension I use. So I deleted and restarted, but the problem continues without it.
I am running macOS High Sierra 10.13.6. My MacBook Air can’t be upgraded to a later OS beyond that. This is the only issue and system I have an issue with Brave on. I use it with no problem on an iPad 4, iPhone 7, and work Windows 10 desktop.
I saw some threads speaking to this issue, but saw no resolution.
