I have been using Malwarebytes on my computer since 2014 and I have witnessed that it has done excellent work in terms of internet protection over the years. I have also been using Malwarebytes Browser Guard since it was first announced, and this extension offers very effective extra protection, such as blocking ads, warnings about harmful sites, etc. But when I opened the YouTube pages with the update made today (17/05/2024), I saw that my computer's CPU and fans were working incredibly high...

Hey there, YouTube updated their page today which conflicted with our ad blocking protections. We pushed a fix, and the issue is resolved on the latest database.

Slows down websites so much. When I go to youtube history page, whole chrome browser freezes to death. When I uninstall Malwarebytes Browser Guard, it doesn't freeze and works fine.
