Steps to reproduce

After installing Creators Update and when running with Norwegian Language for Windows, page- and search suggestions does not work in Edge. Instead one of the Microsoft Edge background processes starts using 30% cpu. This continues until all Edge windows are closed. This problem has been observed on multiple computers. All with Norwegian Language. If we change the language to English US, the problem disappears.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Select Norwegian (Bokmål) as Windows language.
  2. Open Edge browser.
  3. Type any letter in the address bar.

Observe in the Task Manager that one of Microsoft Edge processes consumes 30% cpu.

  • Hi,

    This problem is constant on all our office computers. Also on our personal computers outside of Office. Other people in Norway have reported the same issue:
    You need to have the Norwegian language pack installed and set as display language.


  • Wanted to say our company has the same issue, it happens consistently on all computers. We have put the Creators Update on hold because of this. It does not matter how Windows is installed, manually from VL ISO or deployed from MDT. We use Norwegian VL media, Enterprise edition and Dell computers. I seem to remember the issue didn’t show up on a fresh unpatched Windows 1607 install, but after some Windows updates it was back. Changing Search provider or “prediction while typing” doesn’t matter. No Edge extensions. The prediction thing for norwegian also does not seem to be working in contrast to english language, maybe this is related to the problem.

  • Typo, i meant unpatched Windows 1703 install, not 1607.

We are presently tracking this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.
