Description of the issue:
The first time I launch Brave during a session it always takes a constant 35 seconds to appear.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Launch Brave when no other instance is running.
Brave should appear on the screen within a small number of seconds. On this machine, Firefox appears within 4 seconds. Chromium appears within 2 seconds.
Version 1.49.128 Chromium: 111.0.5563.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)
I tried launching from the command line, and if no other instance of Brave is running, the following error message quickly appears:
[241280:241308:0324/160401.746156:ERROR:nss_util.cc(357)] After loading Root Certs, loaded==false: NSS error code: -8018
Launching then pauses for 35 seconds and these appear:
mesa: for the --simplifycfg-sink-common option: may only occur zero or one times!
mesa: for the --global-isel-abort option: may only occur zero or one times!
mesa: for the --amdgpu-atomic-optimizations option: may only occur zero or one times!
Just before Brave appears on the screen, there is a very quick flash (< 1 second) of a dialogue/message box that then disappears. It disappears too quickly to read.
Once an instance of Brave is running, starting a second instance is almost instantaneous and results only in the command line message “Opening in existing browser session.”
I’ve tried having all extensions enabled and disabled, hardware acceleration enabled and disabled. Resetting to factory defaults. Nothing makes a difference.
