Steps to reproduce

If you enter a reasonable sized stack trace in a GitHub issue, the textbox becomes barely usable to enter in text around the issue description.

The issue appears to be that Edge is struggling with all of the spelling errors in a typical stack trace.

Turning of spell checking isn’t the answer because the rest of the text in the issue should be spell checked. Chrome doesn’t suffer this perf issue either for the same amount of spelling errors in the textbox.

    • Thank you for letting us know about this issue.  We would like to investigate further. Would you be able to provide addtional information? 



      1. include the Windows build number, URL, textbox and ‘reasonable sized stack trace’ for a concrete repro
      • or, better yet, -

      2.  Grab a Edge etl: (** NOTE: this may grab memory [e.g. stacks] from your system, so please don’t include any sensitive data **)
      (a) From an admin command prompt:
      (i) cd %windir%\system32
      (ii) wpr -start EdgeBrowser
      (iii) ++ Exercise repro ++
      (iv) wpr -stop c:\foo.etl 10985002
      (v) Attach c:\foo.etl to bug
