Whonix lagging when opening a new tab, clicking links, etc. in Tor.

The title sums my issue up pretty well, whenever I open a tab in Tor, click a link, or open a bookmark the whole operating system locks up for 10-20 seconds. It’s practically unusable at this point. I have no issue running Tor on my host OS.

Whonix workstation has 8 GB of RAM allocated to it, other than that I have not changed any of the default settings, the gateway has 2 GB of RAM as well. My host machine is very capable.

If anyone has had this issue or has a possible solution it would help me out a lot if you could share it with me, thank you!
