Steps to reproduce

  1. Navigate to a web page or type text into the address bar
  2. Highlight text in address bar
  3. CTRL-C to copy, Edge will hang for a couple seconds then crash

Note: Copying from anywhere else in the application does not crash Edge, but also does not work. The clipboard remains empty. Pasting from the clipboard works fine. After restarting Edge, it will continue to exhibit the same problem. Rebooting the system resolves the issue temporarily, but after leaving Edge running and using it for an undetermined amount of time (I notice it after a couple days typically), the issue starts happening again.

The following Error is captured in the Windows Event Viewer upon crash:
