High CPU on macOS

I can't figure out a pattern to this, but over the last few days 1Password and 1Password Helper have suddenly been using very high CPU. If I start the 1Password app and quit from the menu, things settle down. I only noticed the high CPU when my fans stay on for unusually long. Is anyone else seeing this?

1Password Version: 80900001
Extension Version: 2.4.2
OS Version: macOS 12.5
Browser:_ Safari and Microsoft Edge (103.0.1264.77)

    Sorry... wrong process. The culprits are "1Password Helper (Renderer)" and "1Password"

    Yes, this happens numerous times per day. I've opened a case with support and have submitted various logs and traces.
    It's also leaking memory.

    Thanks @lasseoe ! I've located the ticket and can see that you were previously speaking to my colleague, Jac. We've since released an update that should resolve the high CPU issue. Can you update the 1Password for Mac app to the latest nightly build to see if it helps? Here are the steps on how to update to the latest nightly:

    1. Open the 1Password 8 for Mac app.
    2. From the menu bar, select 1Password > Preferences > Advanced.
    3. For 'Release Channel:', select 'Nightly'.
    4. Switch to the 'About' tab, and click 'Check for Updates'.

    As of this writing, the latest nightly version is 80901030. Let me know if that helps or you have any questions along the way. 🙂
