Just wanted to check if anybody else observed this annoying behaviour in
Chromium/Iridium browsers. Randomly, in about 10-40% of cases, the new
tab hangs loading for 30-60 seconds, after which time the browser shows
a dialog that the webpage doesn't load and I can either kill or wait.
There is no pattern, sometimes I can open 10 tabs with no issues, but
sometimes 10 tabs hang in a row and need to be killed. Very often when I
kill the page reloading the page doesn't help, it still hangs, but when
I open the same URL in a new tab it works. Sometimes, however, reloading
the page also works.
I compiled and installed Iridium hoping that it will be free from this
bug but it seems that the behaviour is exactly the same as in Chromium.
It has been happening for the past year at least. Maybe some of the
options I checked for Chromium/Iridium don't work well or maybe some of
its dependencies are compiled with options that don't work well. How
would I investigate it?
I didn't try to install precompiled versions. Also, the issue doesn't
happen with other browsers (Firefox, any other I could compile on
FreeBSD are also fine). I tried to open in safe mode, without
extensions, but all without any difference in this behaviour.
