I’ve found this to be an issue as well. None of the things that I’ve seen suggested online could fix it, and unfortunately do not have time to look at it myself. I’d be interested to hear if anyone has any more details regarding this issue.

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.

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?
