So I personally dealt with this issue for at least two weeks and didn’t have the slightest clue as to what could be causing Edge to crash randomly. I checked everything I possibly could: checked the version number, uninstalled and reinstalled, tried different websites, even tried using in safe mode with networking!
And then I come across this post from Brad Sams…
If you have Google set as the default engine and try to type in the search bar, the browser may crash. The problem is related to “Search Suggestions” and when that API is called, the browser crashing instantly.
I am seeing it on my dev and release channel builds of the browser. If you have been experiencing this issue, you can navigate to edge://settings/search and turn off the feature as a workaround.
And low and behold…I always set Google as my default search engine no matter what browser I use so umm yeah…I guess I should be happy the problem was identified and fixed.
