Steps to reproduce

See attached PDF file. Open in Edge and click on the hyperlink leading to a figure, e.g. the “14” in "fig. 14". The view will jump to the correct point in the PDF, display the page, but the tab will then freeze. No further scrolling in the document is possible and (sometimes but not always) CPU use by Edge is very high (e.g. 40%).

Other tabs continue working.
