Watching TED talks freezing the browser


#1

OSX 10.13.3
Brave 0.21.18

I just noticed this issue for the first time today, but it’s my first time watching these videos in a while. When I watch a video on ted.com the following things happen:

  • I am no longer able to switch or close tabs (this applies both to the window with ted.com and any other open windows if they exist)
  • I am no longer able to open a new window
  • My autoplay deny preference is ignored

All of these problems persist until I close the application and relaunch. I’ve tried it both with ted.com in the only window I have open (which only has two other tabs open) and with ted.com in its own window.
