Steps to reproduce

Edge hangs when I try to open a favorites folder that has a large number of bookmarks in it (several hundred.) It never recovers from the hang. Repeatedly clicking on different favorite folders and page tabs after the hang occurs, causes Edge to close/crash.

Favorites folders with a smaller number of bookmarks open without trouble.

I have seen that this issue has been reported by other users in the past few months as well, but was closed as "Not reproducible".

I have attached a DxDiag text file from my PC.
