Steps to reproduce
Create an xml document
Create an element but do not append it
Query the document using xpath with the node as context for something that should return no result.
The above will cause Edge to crash and reload the page as an auto correction.
See this fiddle for live demo https://jsfiddle.net/5tdj8L7m/
In order to view how the demo should behave open the site in any other browser.
I have attached a code sample to reproduce this.
The browser should not crash and the xpath query should not return a result.
