Steps to reproduce

I stumbled unto this thread while searching for an answer that appears to be this same problem. Webpages are opening twice per request. I am not a programmer so I will not be able to communicate this in a applicable way. This started happening right after the major update September 2017. It causes errors and web pages to stop responding. It appears to be more repeatable when pages include flash video, but not exclusively.

    • Sorry for the confusing first sentence, I copied pasted from a prior thread I found, but the comment did not complete. There was a thread started about this problem dated 2016. This issue seemed to be exactly what was happening currently. Facebook is very much affected by this issue. That page continuously stops responding. Other pages will not load completely or stop loading half way. I have not had any problems with edge since the original release except for spell check issues way back at the start.

    • Hi Demma,

      Can you give more information on what you mean by the same page is loading twice?  You see two tabs opening?  or you see that the page starts loading and then appears to reload after sometime?

      Also, will you provide the previous discussion link, so I can compare and/or combine the issues?

      Appreciate the help,


    • ok, so ‘most’ pages will load and then load again. IOW it is almost like a ‘refresh’ of the same page. I have deletion of temp data at shut down enabled, I thought maybe this is what is causing this. I have not yet tested that theory yet. I don’t think its the culprit since its the current session that reproduces the problem. I never had this problem until the update in early September late august this year. Sometimes its a full 2 seconds before it refreshes. like a login page, where I am starting to type user / password info and then for no reason the page refreshes. I did think it was a flash video problem, but it has proven not to be the case as even the simplest of pages are doing this. Sorry for the delay, for some reason MS emails started going to junk mail folder.??? here is the link, the only difference is that I don’t get an error.

    • Hi Demma,

      Are you still experiencing this issue?  Did you have to create a new user to resolve the issue?

      If you are still having the issue, a fiddler4 or a har file from the deubgger’s network window (F12) would be helpful.
