Microsoft’s new Edge browser is randomly crashing when users type into the address bar tonight. The issues appear to be affecting Edge users who have selected Google as the default search engine. Microsoft says it’s aware of the problems and the company’s Edge team is investigating.

The issue seems to have been resolved ... mine is back to working normally 



Microsoft’s Edge browser was crashing if you had Google set as default search

The issues are now resolved after a temporary workaround

Microsoft’s new Edge browser started randomly crashing when users typed into the address bar tonight. The issues appear to have affected Edge users who had selected Google as the default search engine. Microsoft investigated the problem and now says it’s believed to have been resolved.

The Microsoft Edge crashes started at around 7PM ET, and were affecting macOS and Windows users. Microsoft resolved the problems after around four hours of crashes, but it’s not clear why they were only limited to Google search users in Edge. If users switched to Microsoft’s Bing search engine within Edge, the crashes never occured.

Microsoft is now recommending that Edge users revert any settings they changed as the address bar crashes are now resolved.
