Steps to reproduce

I don’t have any specific steps on how to reproduce this problem. Here’s what happens: After using Microsoft Edge for a while, it gets into a mode where the window does not properly display when the window is resized. If I make the display size wider, the new area is completely white. What was previously displayed still remains showing as tough it doesn’t know the screen width was increased. The window frame gets bigger, This also affects the minimize, maximize and close button in the upper right corner. They too do not display (blank white); however, if I click where the close button should be, it actually closes the window. So its acts like it knows that the top bar has been resized. I can resize back down to the original screen size and things start displaying correctly again. If I make the window smaller, it redisplays correctly; however if I increase the width again it does not display correct (and I’ve lost a little more screen real estate) The new area is blank (completely white). Once in this mode, the problem never goes away even if I close all instances of edge and then start a new one. The only thing that corrects the problem is by restarting windows.

I’ve has this problem probably for over a year. I don’t know what causes it, but it happens quite regularly (probably once a day, and sometimes more often.)

The only thing I do that sets me apart from other users of Edge is that it quite common that I have anywhere from 20-40 tabs in a edge session. I do that so I can get back to pages I previously visit. The history feature doesn’t seem to capture every page I visit, so that’s why I have so many open at one time. So that may be related, but if I don’t shutdown Edge and restart windows and open edge, I get back all the tabs I had open; and since I restarted windows, the problem goes away with the caveat that it reoccur again after using edge again for an extended period of time. By the way, I don’t notice any performance penalty for have lots of tabs opened.
