    • Hi Jerard,

      I was able to repro this in 15063.608 by opening two tabs with youtube videos playing.  On the second tab.  I could either use Ctrl+C or right click and copy to cause the page to slow down and many times crash.

      However, I testing this in the current insider skip ahead release and a recent developers build and the issue is not reproducible.  The difference is noticeable.  In the newer releases you do not see any lag or slow down at all.

      Can you tell me the version of Windows you are running?  Win key and type ‘winver’ and press enter.

      I will be closing this as ‘fixed’ unless you have questions.

      Appreciate the submission,

      The MS Edge Team

    • i have same problem might use another web browser Wexplorer instead microsoft edge

    • I have the same problem, whenever I see an interesting female specimen on youtube, and I want find her on pornhub for research purposes, my browser crashes after highlighting the name and hitting ctrl+c. This greatly reduces my producitivty index. Can’t do research like this!

    • This is also applicable for build 15063.632 and it’s extremly annoying, well not at the same level as Lorenzo describes, which I can only imagine must be very frustrating.
      I have also tried to reinstall Edge from PowerShell, but the problem persist regardless. Furthermore, I have tested the scenario, with and without extensions for Edge, same result.

    • same problem here, Windows version 1703 (OS build 15063.674) Enterprise i’m from BRAZIL!
