FYI: Chromium 79.0.3945.88 appears to have introduced a bug that affects users running Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 flavours) inside VirtualBox.
The symptom is that keyboard and mouse input inside the current tab freeze. The only way to unfreeze is to select a different tab with the mouse, and then return to the previous tab. Freezing occurs every few seconds to minute or so, resulting in a painful experience.
This issue is now present in both Brave and Chrome, but not in the previous version of Chromium (79.0.3945.79) which Brave was using prior to this commit/merge.
@mkarolin Yes, that's the issue. It's been submitted to Google Chrome's forums too.
The issue exists in Brave now too, since it's based on Chromium.
Unfortunately, rolling back Brave to 1.1.20 doesn't completely fix the issue. Webpages still freeze.
Chromium version 79.0.3945.79 does not have this **issue.
