Using search bar in Youtube uses 100% cpu and freezes the whole browser

As the subject states, in the last few days I have been experiencing this very annoying phenomenon. I can start youtube, pick any video from recommended or my subscriptions, but aftery using the search bar to look up anything else, the whole browser freezes for at least 30 seconds but usually more. This started on maybe Sunday. Any tips? I have hardware acceleration disabled, but tried it both ways. I have cleared cache/history/cookies. Haven't tried a refresh yet and wouldn't want to if there's any other solution. Any tips to fix this?
