Usually I open some tabs (5-30) from social Media apps and switch to the browser later to read the sites

sometimes there is a strange behavior when switching to the browser

it opens normally but then it shows the websites titles and icons one after an other and only the last one gets opened

here's a better description

1. scrolling through my feed in a social media app opening with privacy browser
2. switch back to social media app as soon as I see the progress bar rising
3. open
4. see step 2
5. open
6. repeat step 2 and opening a new page 5-30 times
7. switch to privacy browser

there are no multiple tabs now
instead only one tab is shown
it's title and icon changes very fast from to to ...the last website starts to load

It could also happen that privacy browser crashes and all tabs lost after starting the app again or just the latest one is being saved

Here are some specs:
Android 9 Stock ROM
Fairphone 3
app version from unknown version months ago until current version 3.4.1
battery optimation is disabled for privacy browser

I hope my description is good enough to be understood. It not please email me.
