Steps to reproduce

Browse to any big site or site with ads & videos, like facebook & their live videos section. Try to scroll around and use the site. Open a tab or two. Before you know it Edge will Freeze up on you. This is new in this insider build… was WAY more reliable before. Hopefully you already know what broke. :)

    • I found that disabling the lastpass extension vastly improved performance (not sure if a problem with their code, or Edge’s), but Facebook Live Videos map ( https://www.facebook.com/livemap/?ref=bookmarks ) still causes every Edge tab to freeze up for minutes at a time in build 14366.

    • Are you still seeing these problems in the latest build we rolled out?  Build number is 14366.

      Thanks for the feedback,

    • Hi Brad,

      Yes, trying to use the facebook livemap page consistently renders Edge unresponsive in build 14366.

    • We have not been able to repro this in our anniversary update build: 14393.10 - Are you still seeing this same problem in this build?

      My apologies for the delay in reacting to this message.

    • Hi Brad,

      Yes. Unfortunately I’m still seeing frequent hangs in the 14393.51. Here’s a scenario that locks it up every time for me:

      1. Open http://realclearpolitics.com
      2. Before the interstitial ad loads (which will be plenty of time on Edge), look at the “RealClealPolitics Election 2016” widget in the upper right of the page…
      3. Click the top-left little link in that upper-right widget labeled "RCP Poll Average".

      Edge will hang.

    • Thank you for your feedback on our insider builds.

      We have fixed a number of hangs and this no longer seems like an issue on Facebook Live Video.

      All the best,
